Pseudopredators

SharksGroup dynamics and energy transfers
Discussions turn into argument disasters
Passion and passion with
Intellectual black and blue,
There are no concessions
In the egotistical lawsuit.

The rhetorics fly and the words are spat –
Caffeine filled people do caffeine filled acts,
The observer puts distance between them and eye
The viewpoint shifts, discussion becomes benign
Voices fade, body language viewed –
Animals constrained to coffee table zoo.

Cigarettes are lit after voices are raised
Coffee is ordered in a bloodshot daze.
The voices lower, agree to disagree
Situation defused, the anger abates
Discussion now gently speaks of debate,
And that’s the part people really hate.
