The poem ‘The Inchcape Rock’ by Robert Southey delivers the message that one should not willingly cause harm to others. If they do, they would be punished in the end. In other words, it’s “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

It is our work that pays back to us. So it’s all about good work or ‘karma’.

U can simply write it as “As you sow, So shall you reap”.

As you sow, so shall you reap. This is the central idea of the poem as Sir Ralph gets the punishment of cutting the bell on the Inchcape rock.
