Argumentation - A Pleasure? - Poem by Maitali Verma
Argumentation - some say is a pleasure -
In it meets the brimful of ideas with the mouthful!
That urge to see the milieu around sink deep
Into the volley of words and incantations of thoughts,
Am sure, is nothing less than the impulse of dying immortal!
The two minds be of one disposition, this adept art
Thrives thus; augmentation in passion to contend,
Is an agreement in solidarity toward a mutual incongruity,
Nowhere to reach is the inferred assumption,
Process, all in all, is the antecedent as equally it is its consequence!
A pleasure, I said, in drinking down the contentment
Of giving not just the definite mould to thoughts in words,
but also determined to make a mound for it in others' mind -
What admiration! Words cloaking the ideas, all ornamented
With dexterous use of langue, archery of tone, pitch and accent
Syllable by syllable, meeting the morphemes, and syntax wrought
To spell bind the other's mind; in convincing lies the soul's banquet!
Time then really flies, and definitely no feeling of loss,
Though lots many words be expended,
Though many words also defended the cross contention!
Argumentation - some say is a pleasure
Was thus the pleasure? Mouthful of words and forced/forceful tone!
No ending, only beginning; in process of convincing,
Enchanted with the performance, In the process, though
Lost time, words, energy and the bonding that silence had made!
