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.
