The prompt for today’s Haiku Challenge is the word “anger.”

Anger is a false god.
It steals away man’s reason.
It’s repaid in hate.

    while i liked the thought , i did not like the use of “It” ! It steals some show of the haiku ..

      Upon rereading, I agree with you. “Stealing away man’s reason” would have been much stronger. I dream of the day I read my stuff and do not see something I could improve. Thank you.

    well put.
    agree, you nailed it romantically.

  8. azfree says:

    That is well expressed, and a sign that your reason is still well intact!
