Where Anger Rules! ! ! - Poem by Tom Zart

An angry heart opens its mouth
And shuts its mind to reason.
Any who stay slow to anger
Are loved by more each season.

Anger snuffs our lamp of thought
And it's hard to stay serene.
Where anger rules hatred thrives
And the world we love turns mean.

Those who fan the coals of hate
Have no reason to complain.
If some hot sparks scorch their face
Anguish is thus their pain.

We must shun with shame all acts of evil
And glorify those who do good.
Better is the gift of love and learning
For by virtue we become what we should.
