Strangers clash

Inspiration:

Polite company

“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.”

It’s never a good idea to discuss politics with people you don’t really know

Because you are not sure of how far this stranger might be prepared to go

To prove emphatically that they are right and you are therefore very wrong

Is your belief or theirs embedded in how you live your life so very strong

That you might risk all to argue with a stranger you may never meet again

In reality in the fierce arguing does anyone really have anything to gain?

Why should what I think impact on your life in any way?

Why can we both not simply each have our own say?

Does one person have to be right and the other wrong?

Why can we agree to disagree and just get along?
