Two opposing forces meet,
matching strengths and wits,
“rubbing each other the wrong way”,
as they struggle to convince.
Caught up in a conflict
that neither side can win;
carrying on incessantly
because neither side will “give.”
And what is to be gained from this constant state of friction?
But a “rounding of the edges” (a muting of conviction)…
And a spark to light the conflagration
that will consume this competition!
