    More than twenty years after Bob killed a man

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Is it correct to use "jab at" in this sentence?

    More than twenty years after Bob killed a man in a brawl, his troubled conscience still jabbed at him

    It doesn't work for me.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
