True Story - In some Quarters things go Down this Way

When I say stuff you don't agree with
and you ask me questions about it
and I answer them 

and then you say stuff I don't agree with
and I ask questions
and you answer them 

and slowly we get
to know each
other as long as respect is foremost
in both our heads
this can get done

without violence.
