Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

The nit-picking,
The haggling and wrangling,
All in a days work,
The arguments often
Repeated and the
Gestures mimicked
These prices,
These words of subtlety,
That create differences
Of give and take
In the market places
Of common folk
And the stately seats
Of political power.
