A Waste of Time
A penchant to be disputatious
Foments an atmosphere ungracious.
Defaulting e’er to ridicule
Reveals an urge to fight a duel.
Recognizing others’ worth,
Showing just a trace of mirth,
Acknowledgement of others’ virtue
Helps bridge gaps, and could not hurt you.
Verse with wit’s unique, distinct,
Clear, concise, brief and succinct.
Engaging in a barroom brawl
Does no one any good at all.
Pugnaciousness is not a crime,
Instead it’s just a waste of time.
