Tough thing to do

Holding your fire is no mean trick

when friends or relatives come off the rails

Physically-painful restraint


 

Holding your fire is no mean trick

when you know you can out-joust the jouster

You want to play rough? So be it


 

Holding your fire is no mean trick

when you try to keep it civil

but they go for the jugular


 

Holding your fire is no mean trick,

but using facts goes over their heads

like reality


 

Holding your fire is no mean trick,

but how can you argue the facts

when theirs are different?

It can certainly be tricky with relatives... or friends. But we're all entitled to voice our opinions. Excellent, Mike.
