Games people play!

Sleight of hand, sleight of mind

I hope to recognize the feint quickly

Before my foe launches his trickery

In his eyes is where I'll read the scheme

That's where the arrogance will gleam

Extroverted plans we cannot conceal

Introverted plots, the better of the lot

Nods of affirmation,  certain confirmation

The id had best react, the ego, too slow

Psychological epee thrust my way

React with the indefensible, indifference

It is a pure shot to the ego of your foe

This is the only defense that is also, offense

Aim it well and the opponent quickly fades

Reduced to the rubble, of insecurity

I have to be honest, I did have to read it twice to get it. Love the message behind the depth of it!

Wisdom-filled words, here. I have often been glad that I used indifference or silence as a response. It throws arrogant mean-spirited people off their mark, and it usually gets them 'out of my face.'

God bless you. Kathy
