This is a collaboration between Hullabaloo22 and myself:


Locked Horns, Lock Step!

We’ll put our heads together, come up with an idea,

then we’ll give it a good bashing until we make it clear.


We’ll give it the once over then on it we’ll have a chew

until something kind of pops up in the mind of me or you.


There’s not much we can’t tackle as long as there’s some clue

as to where we want to go with it -- with our slanted point of view.


We share thoughts so similar, it’s a chance to have a laugh

as we take a walk with topics along our unique mental path.


There’s nothing quite the same as writing in collaboration;

who cares if we don’t follow some ‘poetic regulation’?


As long as we have fun with it and get to have our say,

I’d love us to keep joining up for our sessions of word play.


We make a good team, the only question is, do you agree?

If you don't, that won't affect our opinions, see,


we're just typing out out our unique point of view.

No one's disagreement will change what we do.


I've seen, and I used to have the same reaction,

people pull away from their views, and let it be a distraction.


I used to shrink from upsetting anyone,

but now we figure we have a right, and those days are gone,


a right to believe what we believe,

and the hell with others who cannot conceive


of a differing opinion, a different voice,

we're going to keep posting, that's our choice!
