Wrath vs. Gentleness

Proverbs 15:1

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.


Wrath came in and started to fuss

raising commotion as he started to cuss

pushing everyone around ‘til he got his own way

robbing peace and disrupting the day


Hostility challenged wrath and they began to fight

round for round they boxed left and right

‘til wrath came out in first place

with hostility down flat on his face


Hatred came next and jumped right on wrath

destroying everything in his path

except for wrath who was too strong

so hatred’s defeat didn’t take too long


Last of all gentleness entered in

and wrath was ready to fight again

but gentleness walked right up and kissed wrath on the head

and wrath staggered and stumbled and there fell down dead
