Angerís Bilious Nature

 

Back since the dawn of humanity,

Perhaps to when animal 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 over spent.

 

Others point to chemicals,

Like testosterone;

Physicalreasons for aggression,

With psychological overtone.

 

Whatever the cause, the effect is the same:

Hurt feelings, torment and pain;

So if you can control it,

Please, from anger, refrain.

 

While angered words may break no bones,

Theyíve fueled the fire of war;

Guard your temper carefully,

So anger may rage no more.
