Some say she is angry

From time to time

Yet it is never really

In her armoury

She creates


Others cannot meet

She gives us lessons

From which to learn

The white froth


Against the immovable

Showing her power to impact

Her implicit authority

To alter our world

At will

Has us wondering

Why she needs us at all

Some say she is angry

From time to time

Advice in dealing with her

Is a must

So many things

One must keep in mind


It is not her rage

One should fear

Do not question her motives

Or her moodiness

Do not query her influence

Or dedication

Resist the temptation

To retort

Or believe you can win

And never spit in her face

Lest she spit back with interest

Some say she is angry

From time to time

However, I fail to see anger

As her weapon

It has been my experience

Across the years

To note emphatically

It is something

We should call inherent
