Fencing

Sunder And Sonati

We take sides
Erect barricades
And settle down to see
Who can outshout the other

Changing your mind
Is seen as
Loss of face
So there is no effort made
To empathise with the other
To see a different point of view
To reach a compromise
No compassion whatsoever:
Who will blink first?
Is the only question

An unyielding
Stare for a stare
Can also
Make the whole world blind
