Squabbling

We argued on this form to no avail
With purposes that crossed yet never met
The poets that we quoted never cared
And yet we aired opinions anyway

I took a stand and others disagreed
Without a need the battle lines were drawn
The escalation kept the site amused
More words were used than in a Shakespeare play

Then one or two appeared to make us laugh
And make me see the silly sight I made
So rather than dispute the wrongs and rights
I’ll laugh about the way that I behaved

I find unrhymed a sonnet doesn’t gel
But what the hell I’ll write one anyway

Author notes

I know Laura said it doesn’t have to be IP but she didn’t say it couldn’t be
