Quickie-Argument - Poem by Loke Kok yee

In an argument never push someone into a corner
The rules of engagement will no longer be adhered
It is like talking to a drunk who had too much beer
Reasoning will fail and it will end in violence severe

    Now this is very true. Many arguments can be deescalated with body language, tone of voice, allowing options, some sort of compromise, or just walking away. Many arguments can escalate when people feel there is no other option than violence. (Report) Reply
