The World Runs On Anger/Medusa Speaks
Anger is one of these, and
For whatever reason
Disdain for outrage
Is the only kind of anger
All parties approve of regardless.
I guess– anger used to
Stifle another’s anger
Is anger well spent…?
Anger is righteous, and
Feelings are defensive. Perceived, experienced,
Not always bled bare for all to see.
Anger– on the other hand
Anger has proof, anger has pudding
Anger has war, dominance, and victory.
Maybe clickbait and technology
Is being fueled by misinformation
Because of feelings
Or maybe anger, contempt, disdain
Simplification, stereotyping, racial profiling
All of the worst instincts that can be fired through
An app on your phone– that’s what
Sells the most. Maybe
It’s the great softening, we’re experiencing
Or maybe we got so hard
We’ve been turned to stone.
