Weekly Scribblings Poem ~~ To Not Overly Punch


Adi Beagle Dog, has she found a poodle friend? 

(Click the title for website link)(Punches Saved

pull or not to pull

One who pulls no punches 
Bent on winning regardless 
Loses lots of friends 

Cousin of my spouse 
Touted all words from the king 
Unfriended her fast 

Kid in class argued 
Proved the prof was very wrong 
Only one to fail 

Timids seldom swing 
They unload punch carefully 
Called diplomacy

 - I am linked with Rommy who provided the idea to write about ", or not to pull punches," at Weekly  Scriblings #55
 - I have neglected my YouTube page, Jim1Jim1, terribly.  I may never post another? 
 - Rommy would like us to 'write new poetry or prose while “reflect[ing] upon either the phrase ‘pull no punches’ OR ‘pull your punches’.”'

So true! I think it's best to unfriend, in life or online, people like that.
Oh, that beagle! I love how she is ignoring the poodle!

Well said, Jim. I do wonder about that last stanza, though..about cowards and diplomacy!
