Everyone Has An Opinion

Started a new set of prompts – I love lists of things – this one will prove to be endlessly productive for another couple of years – 227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. This the 3rd of the 92 pācittiyas.

Everyone Has An Opinion

his opinion was

irrelevant to me

not that he was

in fact I enjoyed

spending time with him

until he commented

on an item in the news

the item was irrelevant

to why were naked together

 

as he went on & on

I was at first amused

then dismayed

tried to present

a more moderate

point of view

which pushed him even further

but

he was fun in bed

I choose to overlook his opinion

one I never asked for

& now that I knew it

there was no need to

know more about him

or his opinions

only when we might

get together again

which we did eventually

and when we did

it was good

until he launched

into an opinion

he spoke as one

who only listens

to those who agree with him

which I understand

why spend time

with people who argue with you

life is too short

 

besides he knew what he knew

who was I to disagree

so

seeing him again became

irrelevant
