Poesy plus Polemics

the clean public square

the new-mown town green

that civil surround

where opinion declaimed

and rebuttal proceeded

without inquisition

where rational discourse

drew vigor from fiercely

free air unpolluted by

uninformed prejudice

pure of ad hominem

fresh with the scents

of integrity blossomed

receptive to cogently

voiced counterargument

forum and agora

laid for a gathered ecclesia

given to healthy exchange

of perception and insight

along with the silks and

the spices that made for

an amply enriched way of life
