Lashing Out

Lashing out in a huff gives hug
'Til deep within a scar he dug

Life with a angry~happy man
A fake smile saying life is grand

While in the kitchen the wife cooks
Getting by with hook or crook

As she pours sweet Pine~Sol too
Smell the savory scent of stew

Holding a hot coal to calm nerves
Anger dispersed throughout swerve

Acidic antidote poured out
Ruined the vessel's long strong spout

Living with angry~happy man
From outside life looked all time grand

    Sara.......I must say, this is absolutely superb. It will do very well, indeed. Often..all that anger gets bottled up inside, and one never ones when that final spark will bring about a tragedy. Thanks for sharing this, my dear! hugs!
