Gone Wrong

The courtroom stands
the judge enters, black robes in place
here the emotion is hate, revenge at hand
husband and wife here for the get evens
the love they had now just so costly
a fight for possession of community property
expensive staging, a legal production
this, their final confrontation
lawyers in charge of the children
to use as part of an elaborate subduction
everyone trying to make sense of the wreckage
attorneys scheme to obliterate the other side
anything to encourage the breakage
the payoff comes to who can better undermine
here, both sides consumed
meals are anger and vengeance
dragged out days of pain
hate reaching its full potential
oh, how much hurt is produced
reducing all to victims of love gone wrong
