Discussion Enders: Final words


We’ve all had exchanges where we came up with the perfect reply — ten minutes too late. Write down one of those, but this time, make sure to sign off with your grand slam (unused) zinger.


A perfect riposte,

A ripping rejoinder,

A tart retort.

Something that’ll make their feet melt

Back into the clay they come from.

That’s what we seek,

Looking to come off better—not bitter.

Always having the last word and the last laugh.

But are all battles to be won?

Aren’t some words just better off left unsaid?

Isn’t it better to concede a point,

Than never to talk ever again?

End of discussion.
