The Diplomatic Social Assassin

"Oh, hi.......and a good day to you, fellow traveler"
I then, re-burrowed my nose in my book,

seemed like an exceptional thing to do, at the time
I certainly didn't want to give him, the "look".

Coerced into riding the train into work
I didn't need some "nut" rattling on,

but he continued to yammer on endlessly
I made a point of letting him see me yawn.

No matter the topic, my thoughts were "suspect"
so, he kept arguing with me all along,

I came up with a comeback that shut him up, quick
I said, "I could agree with you..........but, then we'd both be wrong!"
