On Being Caught Unawares

On Being Caught Unawares

A Chapter by Dave Brown



When caught unaware in an argument between two best friends

It is usually unwise to interfere and suggest making amends

In many instances the argument is somewhat of a ritual

And if you side with one side, the other side considers you as being bitchual

And if you side with the other side, the one side will say you’re a total jerkable

And enjoying each other’s company afterwards most often just isn't workable

Which in my bestimation means, that while others are at odds

Possibly spewing obscenities which could include references to those not directly involved such as whatever number of various, unrelated gods

What’s probably best to do in my guestimation

Although it is no more than an unrequested suggestion

But if refreshments can be found on a far distant table

Enjoy those refreshments, as long as they are available

This is a hilarious snapping turtle of a poem. I'm reminded of how USA headlines say the old dead duke was doting to the queen. In America, that's called royally henpecked . . . not a legacy most men would wish for. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm catching hints of . . . nevermind. Every word I try to think of is either too long or too insulting! I'm trying to be nice so I'll shut up now (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Hello, Dave! :)
This was a lot of fun to read. Your wordsmithing pulled me in, and the wisdom you’ve shared seems practical and a great way to join others in celebrating their differences.

Always tell them to get a round in before they kill each other.
Mind you, some just argue over such dumb things, like the price of beer followed by politics and back to the price of beer.
