Age of Rage

In this age, rage has become the norm,
an angry world looks at people’s faces 
with suspicion in the streets, 
and elders are beaten black and sore,
petty thieves crashing the store windows, 
while families lock their doors at home,
as night sleuths peep from the blinds 
checking to see how much loot they can raid.
Neighbors no longer star gaze on the porch
who knows where a gunfire can blow
when children become trigger happy 
making school mates a shooting gallery;
in this age when rage is the new norm.

    Very true, Amelie, people tend to fly into a rage now, more than ever before.
