Anger addict

(Lord’s day). At church in the morning. A stranger made a very good sermon. Dined at home, and Mr. Spong came to see me; so he and I sat down a little to sing some French psalms, and then comes Mr. Shepley and Mr. Moore, and so we to dinner, and after dinner to church again, where a Presbyter made a sad and long sermon, which vexed me, and so home, and so to walk on the leads, and supper and to prayers and bed.

Anger made
a good home:
come to dinner vexed
and walk on lead.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Sunday 1 June 1662.
