Deadly Pill of Anger

Thinking of James 1.19-21

O God, this deadly pill of anger
Closes weakened minds to reason,
Delivers the soul to wild emotion,
In vengeance feeds the wounded hunger —

Cleanse us with your word of pardon,
Open our ears to hear your warning,
Loosen tongues for harmless learning,
Let not our hearts in anger harden.
