Wrath vs. Gentleness

Wrath vs. Gentleness
January 15
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
