Control

I spoke liberally with a liberal,
Conservatively with a conservative,
Religiously with a devout,
Politically with an activist,

Scientifically with a scientist,

Artistically with an artist;

On the power of free thought.

 

And they agreed with me
And trusted me,

Until I disagreed with them.
Then not so much;
Because they couldn't

Control the argument.

Bravo!

Frome whence cometh the squeezed out wisdom and wit to paint a portrait with words that sing and disturb and teach all in metaphor on "free thought" with a clear voice. Shocking! - slc
