When Things Snowball

A single snowflake
floats innocently down

Joining others
to form a snowball

Now of sufficient heft
perfect to smite others

Flake upon flake
snowdrifts amass

Their collective weight
an avalanche making

Engulfing justice
in a furious blaze of white

But a single branch
of self-interest

Left
poking through
