A lively group discussion, an intimate tête-à-tête, an inner monologue — in your view, when it comes to a good conversation, what’s the ideal number of people?
Speaking aloud to myself,
Is sometimes an effective way,
To clear a cloudy head.
But I’d be more than fine with a dialogue,
Though it probably is better
that it be a series of conversations.
One talks, the other listens—well.
Turns at each role.
Clarity in communication—the goal.
(“Understand me, chump.”
“Comprehend me, sweetheart.”
It’s a one-to-one.)
A lively group discussion,
Not a shouting melee,
Can throw up ideas,
In a huddle we brainstorm.
They all have their uses,
They all have certain aims,
And as long we don’t take ourselves too seriously,
Life should be a round of games.
