You can't Win a Gutter War! (second draft)

(If one becomes Evil
in order to defeat it
Evil wins)

You Lose
once
you step down
plant
both feet
firmly
in the gutter
a poison tree 1

You Lose
yourself

saw limbs of connection
amputate passion
lobotomise meaning

Consume
a diet
of sour grapes

swallow
on Impulse
Salivate
relish

chew furiously
a
not-helping
side-dish
of BLT ala Merde

lose control
at fearsome scenes
anticipated

The Future:

Dressed to Kill

with
More of the Same

all dressed up with nowhere to
getaway
from
the self imprisoned

solitary confinement
of
ANGER

flaring to boil
instantly

from simmering
resolve
down
below
the fires burn
deep

Q. Why choose Anger over Fear?
(in 25 words or less)

A. 'Because it feels empowering and anger tastes better
than fear'

but ANGER is ADDICTIVE
a good servant
a BAD MASTER

'To revenge
is to drink a cup of poison
hoping it kills
your enemy' 2

Let the the Buyer Beware
Warning
Consumers of Anger
may be consumed
by that 'enemy within'

One may
'Shop til you Drop! '

LITERALLY

  138.     

Pain, hope, anger, Tired, fear, lost.

Pain, hope, anger.
Tired, fear, lost.

the pain within is only our own to bare
the hope is our mind playing tricks on us
the anger is finding there is no life
the tired of being pushed around
the fear of losing
the lost

Pain consumes the world
Hope is lost
anger is held high
Tired always
Fear consumes our minds
Lost is all our hopes

Pain can not beat us
Hope still shines the smallest ray of light
anger is controled
fear minimizes
lost is the feeling of emptyness

The pain wont hold us back
The hope shines the way
The anger can not harm
The fear is gone
The lost is home.

Gnawing Anger

She sat looking at me,
Not listening to a word.
Every time we talked, she
Said my opinion was absurd—
You should have seen my face;
The anger I showed was a disgrace.

For years, I have lived with such anger,
Gnawing anger, the kind that lingers
Like roadkill. To be sure, I am not stranger
To rage. Its long bony fingers
Have touched my heart many times,
Urging me to commit heinous crimes.

But to blame anyone for my rage is unjust.
No one is responsible for my fury,
Though I may think so, my eyesight is simply blurry
Anger is seeking a new slave;
As for me, I’d rather be brave,
Before anger puts me deep down in a grave.

Sonnet: On Anger

Remember Man that Anger is futile!
Restrain your temper bad when ‘fumes’ arise;
Apologize if guilty, in high style,
And write your Anger off or play it nice.

Mere counting helps to dissipate Anger;
But slamming doors and raving mad aren’t right;
Poetry puts the ‘plane’ into hanger!
When Anger comes, Man loses his insight.

The more you write, the stinging tone gets less;
The balls you smash will fall away off-court;
Painting, cartooning help Anger harness;
Just hold your temper making it your forte!

An action rash in angry mood too fails;
When calm returns, a better sense prevails.
