To Fidget And Squirm - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You challenge me to debate?
That's great.
You name the time, place and date.
And I prefer to do this,
Without the presence of note taking.

What is the topic you have picked to slate?
I anticipate this.
I can not wait.

'I will have to research that.
You are a bit too eager,
To be seen the fool I wish to make.
Too eager you are.
I'll have to pick on another,
To debate on my terms.
It is you and not me,
I want others to see publicly squirm.'

Oh, no problem.
I thought you were seriously prepared.

'To debate? '

To fidget and squirm.
