Two men talking,
arguing,
fighting,
each wanting the other
to listen,
to hear,
neither willing to let the other
finish a sentence,
complete a thought.

They walk away angry
in opposite directions,
cursing each other
for lack of insight,
for narrow-mindedness,
for shallowness of self-interest.

Neither loved.
Neither sacrificed.
Neither grew.

Cry the beloved country!
