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.

  2. Posting rhyme's a waste of time
    Since no one come to read.
    The rhymes we post are not a crime,
    Nor are the contents dead.

    I must admit the dearth of wit
    Here in the blogosphere
    From where I sit could cause a fit
    If I got lit, my dear.

    The dullness and the dreariness
    Could make one lose one's mind,
    If one allowed the weariness
    One's soul to mincemeat grind.
