just like in a Debate (here)

the 12 given words:
laugh ritual gift tongue turning body
elders poem die met ground taught

to laugh or to cry
a ritual a measure of a gift
one to meddle with a forked tongue
turning healthy debate hot
an uproar of anger

can others respond in the positive
to ease the tension
body language accorded some assertions
elders can snap up the opportunity
they always do for wiser elements
merit a thought

poetic justice a natural safeguard
no more a do and die
but given a fair hearing
it would have met certain grounds
for those good deeds taught
in days gone by

  1. To laugh or cry - some debate are indeed filled with tension. Perhaps, poetic justice is a way to voice one's thoughts.

  2. This stood out for me:
    "to laugh or to cry
    a ritual a measure of a gift"
    I never thought of them as such before, but they are, to a great extent, a conditioned response!

  3. To laugh or cry? We all have that option, how many of us choose the correct one?
    Great to read Hank.
    Keep well and safe.


  4. It is good to be able to "respond in the positive
    to ease the tension".

  5. I think everyone has a responsibility not to be put gasoline on fire of disagreements...

  6. Hopefully we always choose to laugh. I hope you are well.
