Self-Correction

Self-Correction

When anger grows, I tell myself, “Stay cool!”
But then self answers self: “Go fuck yourself!”
He who gives in, they tell me, is a fool—
When anger grows. I tell myself: “Stay cool!
Tranquility must be your golden rule!
Put other motivations on the shelf
When anger grows!” I tell myself, “Stay cool!”
But then self answers self: “Go fuck yourself!”
