The warm reciprocation of a smile
Is all it takes to bridge something, worthwhile?
So why then is it so many people frown
As if they’ve now, shared their own, eiderdown.
I do not know: Friendship is a handshake
With oneself an acceptance of a backache
One must carry like a turtle the world around:
Refusal implies; this is a battleground.
That you, yourself are entrenched in a war
That has no allies. Your hearts a matador
Red flag waving at an unruly bloodthirsty bull
Imagining your Chi’s a carpet of lamb’s wool.
