Sticks and Stones: Words DO hurt!

30 Mar

The fight I fight is a hard one to fight
In this unending battle of words and phrases
Rhetoric and politics
Sociological facts and behavioural economics,
One is often bombarded, assaulted,
By claims impossible to deny
Tension is constant, pride omnipresent
Once one is besieged, one loses all moral
The opponent gets cocky, and fires a barrage
Arguments big and small, almost makes you cry

But then, there it is, the loose thread!
A quick pull, and the façade falls to pieces
The assault has ceased, the arguments gone
The mighty foe now just looks dumb

Now I am the master of his demise!

… I won Best Speaker at a debate exhibition today.


I have cleared most urgent things on my to-do list to bring you this. It’s been a while and I just had a great day because of this victory in debate, so I felt like writing about it. This is my first attempt at pseudo-poetry, so don’t be too harsh. 🙂 See you all whenever. Take care.

      hey, thx alot Bastet! Long time no see. I must say, having a poet of your calibre even reading this is both amazing and also intimidating. I hope it didn’t make you cringe too much.

    You know I can actually imagine you standing proudly with a grimy face and shining armour, sword raised high with a triumphant and slightly exhausted face like “Victory is mine!”
    “Hey what happened?”
    “Oh I just won a debate, I’m going to write a poem about it now and bards will sing of my bravery.”

    Apart from that, nice poem and well done for the award! As you know I’m rubbish at actually speaking so wow to you!

      Yes! That is exactly how I am. As I unsheathe my blade, the sun pierces through the very roof of the auditorium to bathe me in divine light! The divine light of victory!
