The Daily Post prompt is: angry
Anger is for injustice and cruelty,
for crying children with hungry bellies,
and ragged people with dead eyes,
huddled on the street,
for beaten dogs and needless slaughter,
for grotesque wealth
and rubbish heaps crawling with human scavengers.
Anger is the raised fist to say, no more,
and the shout in the throat
when he won’t leave her alone,
and the scars on the earth that will never heal.
For you there is only pain
and a vague regret
that I didn’t see it coming
and take back my love
before you tossed it in the wind.
