This is my body, this is my right, for my body, I'll fight, this is my body, only mine, back off of me, we'll be just fine.

In the bindings of convention,
Two sides arrive to meet,
Their beliefs being pronounced,
As they begin to speak.

In these bindings the two were kind.
They debated, yes, but it was polite all the time.
Then came the shattering of chains,
And all Hell broke loose on that day.

Like an inferno"s fury the two sides now fight,
With neither side taking in the other"s advice.
In brutality that claim the other side as evil,
And, in their insanity, they attack the feeble.

With names, they declare their faction superior,
Drowning out the moderates of the interior.
They crush those who dare to disagree,
Even if they claim to be on the same team.

So pray, the unchosen, who have not yet picked a side,
Watch for the radicals, or else they will consume you alive.
For they care not for reason or truth.
They care only for the blood of the enemy"s troops.

That is kind of you to say,
My poetic rival of today.
However this clash of words requires us,
To battle with metaphorical thrusts.

The competition is still on,
As you can very much see.
So we must continue to fight to the end,
In this war of poetry.

But if you wish to debate,
With something with higher stakes,
Then let us, after this, commence,
With a more thoughtful prance.

But for now, let us continue,
This battle of literary dance,
For while our audience might be small,
Thoughtfulness is within them all.

Like a flower you have power in this last hour, now let's walk a mile for a while.

So is this the end of our first meeting,
A friendly salute and a declaration of peace?
Please, my foe, do not give up so quickly,
For the audience wants a bout of poetic singing.

While truth lies in poetry,
This game here is not that.
It is a game of words, of conflict
Where both sides tip their hats.

So please, my opponent,
Do not give up just yet.
Pour your heart and soul into your last poem,
So we may finish this duet.
