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.
