Sonnet: Argumentation - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Arguments can just lead you to nowhere;
An endless exercise! Why argue then?
The talk of the boneless tongue’s unfair!
But yet people do and fools listen.

Harping about in pointless ways, I want
Hours, days to get wasted in a trice;
’Tis meaningless; no one wins; stop I can’t;
It has victims; no victors; it is a vice!

’Tis a war of words, a trial of strength,
With logic/ill-logic, twists and much turns;
The debate can go on to any length;
Much ill-will is born and it leaves big burns!

Arguments catch like a ‘cold’ from nowhere!
Avoid it and yet, it stays in the air.
