Inspired by online conversations featuring great divides, political and otherwise.

the lowest common d nominator

one asks a question,
the other replies
with insults and slander
that are hard on my eyes

“you answered just like
i’ve come to expect,
no doubt you are playing
with just half of a deck”

“you moron, you fool,”
the first one shoots back,
“there’s no proof of your truth,
and your brain’s got a crack”

the other can’t let
that statement stand,
so he types out a comment
a terse reprimand:

“how dare you accuse me,
you nitwit, you hack,
when it’s clear as a crystal
you’re the one with the lack”

back & forth, forth & back,
round in circles they go,
as down sinks the thread
’til it’s lower than low!
