Angerís Bilious Nature


Back since the dawn of humanity,

Perhaps to when life itself began;

Aggression, rage, and irritability,

proved the bilious nature of man.


The Chinese say the liver gets inflamed,

And the yang runs arrogant;

As fire runs rampant,

The yinís juices get spent.


The west points to chemicals,

Like testosterone;

Physicalreasons for aggression,

With psychological overtone.


Whatever the cause, the effect is the same:

Hurt feelingstorment and pain;

So if you can control it,

Please, from anger refrain.


While sticks and stones may break no bones,

Theyíve fueled the fire of war;

Guard your temper carefully,

So anger may rage no more.
