AGREEING TO DISAGREE

Agreeing to disagree
Seems to be
An exit strategy
For avoiding tragedy.

Selfish inflexibility,
Disguised as civility,
Would rather demoralize
Than attempt compromise.

An empty truce
That seems abstruse;
A handy cop-out
To toss about.

This tug-of-war ends
When both amends;
Together, not apart,
Begins a fresh start.

About John Northcutt Young

I write. Remember making-up stories from spelling words in the fifth grade. A journalism degree followed. Thanks for looking.
