Agree to Disagree

When the argument becomes personal things are said that do not apply to all. Speakers’ moods are no longer affable. There is silence among people. They stall. Do not speak of absolute politics. Do not speak of absolute religion. Change the subject, avoid theatrics. Discussing sports is a wise decision. Speak of the devil, here is our subject. Change social cues like changing names. Better to be relative than object. Such are patterns in language games. Communication can be difficult if agreement must be its end result.

Much thanks for the compliments. Its been a while since I have looked at this one. I seem to remember it differently and it has become magically better with age.

Thank you very much. The poem is not directed at anybody or anything. It is just generalization. I believe you're correct though, it seems to strike a nerve with its truthiness.
