I’ll share what rants are all about,
they’re there to let the venom out.
Keep poisons in and they will grow,
give voice to them and they will go.
If I can have a rant, I find
it clears the rancour from my mind.
It’s relaxation for the wise,
and satisfaction is the prize.
So if I rant and fume, it might
rid me of my gloom and spite.
As I unwind there’s some release,
and in my mind I find some peace.
May all the malice that’s in there,
stay in the chalice that we share.
Then when the rant is over, we
can then decant and feel we’re free.
I can recall disdain and hate,
when I became an ostomate,
and pent up animosity
that went towards my ostomy.
The rants I had were functional,
if not a tad compunctional.
At that time, I’d seethe and shout
to vent my pent-
A rant decants some enmity,
nastiness and hostility.
But what I learned from my blue rage,
was I could turn to a new page.
So there are ways rants can be good,
as I always knew they could.
I must be hopeful you can see,
just how useful rants can be.
