Karma – Microstories #194

“Sir,” said the psychic. “I can know people’s history when I watch them.”

“So?” said the criminal, sifting through a purse.

“You’ve been stealing most of your life.”


The psychic looked up at the falling satellite. “Time to pay your karma.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  1. Much said in a few words, including instilling in us an antipathy toward the criminal through an economy of language. Dark and yet snicker-worthy (candy or laughs, either one). Almost a miniature Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Good stuff!


  2. That’s quite the dramatic payback. 🙂 Great ending.

    No one expects a falling satellite. Those kinds of targeted tragedies always make me think the Universe is out to get certain individuals. Gives me the shivers.
