Justice and karma

The hen prayed lord for a chick.
The lord gave her an egg. The overjoyed hen loved and protected the chick keeping it under her wings.
The hungry and old kite prayed lord for food.
Justice was done. It saw the chick and made it its food.
The hen’s agony never ended.
“Why justice to the kite was done hurting the poor hen and chick?”,  the nine year old  boy asked the lord.
“None can escape from karma”, came the reply.
Decades passed.
Till date he doesn’t know how bizarrely justice and karma works.
