The third in my Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Heavenly Virtues series.
Rage is like
Dripping from a leaky roof,
And she is
Placed underneath to catch the droplets.
It starts off slowly.
But when left unattended
The leak begins to grow,
Until it becomes a torrent of hate.
The water spills out,
Overflowing and staining everyone nearby.
It could have been prevented
Someone had fixed the leak
Or changed the bucket.
But who cares about one dripping ceiling?
