The Voice of Outrage

The Voice of Outrage

The Voice of Outrage

The voice of outrage is never wanted
just craved so deeply
we learn to forget
those who can’t
slowly starve this knowing
from hour to hour
they die of being nice –
inoffensive – suitable
eventually rocking no boats
they become becalmed
on a sea of stagnation
they eventually mistake
for tranquillity
