I’m not a great debater
I’m no good at arguing,
all energy engaged in keeping
voice and tears in check
so I can’t concentrate
to parry or cut with pointed wit.

No matter.
Argument never wins for long,
like fresh snow trampled underfoot
by children thrilled at destruction.

I get on best in silence,
setting on the enemy with tender,
hostage-taking heart.
