anecdotally on the net in mailing lists or usenet news
its quick to rant a hate or flame a sniper shout
insulting people somewhere else
discarded phrases got you rile

but on the net in chatting space
it's hard to turn away apologising balm
the cleaning up of conversation mess
as natter mutter questions become reworded

in conversation your draft asserts are chopped
before they set entrenched

when you stand on written notes you arm yourself as trenchant
there is no sneering chuckle to put you back to right
you guard a silly place so be attacked in splots of acid lines
and more retreats and more defend and more attack
it's all more hate and time

if a problem's for resolve use a conversation
if a problem's for exploit use a written down
who likes to writ and word
who charges by the hour

if accusing ranting words or clever nicely lines attack
written from no conversation discussion diplomacy agreement
using written shows they want no resolution
attack right back perhaps if waste desired or turn your mind ignore

it's my hands
my difficulty with melancholy
hence the coldness
fear in flight, god
dog sea
push pop
