The Anger

I thought I was writing this about the Tea Party people, but I can see how some might think it’s about the Occupy Movement. It isn’t. I promise.

The Anger
Original words and music “The Stranger” by Billy Joel
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider

Well they all have a place they should hide away forever
But they take them out and show themselves instead of being gone
Some are certain, some have zeal, some are sick and some are bitter
They’re the faces of The Anger and we love to spur them on

Well, they all follow those who would disregard their banners
Though they spare no petty grievance there are some who cannot spell
Why should you be surprised that they never show their manners
Did you ever let another see The Anger in yourself

They’re not afraid to try dissent
Every one so loud, every now and then, oooh-ooh
They’ll do it, why not somewhere else?
You should know by now they’ve been fooled themselves

Once they’re used to deceit, it is such a Hate enhancer
And they’ve been known to use logic that I could not recognize
When I pressed them to use reason they refused to even answer
It was then I saw The Anger stick out right between the lies

Well, they all follow those who would disregard their banners
Though they spare no petty grievance there are some who cannot spell
Why should you be surprised that they never show their manners
Did you ever let another see The Anger in yourself

They’re not afraid to try dissent
Every one so loud, every now and then, oooh-ooh
They’ll do it, why not somewhere else?
You should know by now they’ve been fooled themselves

We may never understand how The Anger is inspired
But it isn’t always evil and it is not always wrong
Though we doubt their good intentions we will never quench their fire
Our demise is their desire when The Anger comes along

  2. “When I pressed them to use reason they refused to even answer

    Truth. Sad, but the truth nonetheless.
