Anger's Feast

"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun.

To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past,

To roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontation to come--

To savor the last toothsome morsel of both the pain you are giving

and the pain you are getting back.

In many ways it is a feast fit for a king.

The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself.

The skeleton at the feast is you."

By Frederick Buechner
