indirect

take it to the man
don't bring it to me
if you have the courage of your convictions
then pin the notice to the tree
don't put it on me
don't triangulate
don't disassemble the problem at my feet
i will not be the messenger
i will not be the harbinger the monger of rumor and hate
i will not be the bearer of the business
i will not participate
this is my boundary and you've crossed over it
no is a one word sentence
do we need a translator to infiltrate the message
so it sticks
i will not involve myself even indirectly
these aren't my shenanigans
if you want to resolve an issue
if you want to get results
you talk directly to the person
not through me
anything less would be an insult
both you and the other person
deserve a face to face
i am not taking your positions
you must grab the steering wheel yourselves
the world drives better with direct applications
so go on and have at it
discuss and remove the gloves
with a little application of effort
and a little dose of love
you will have a compromise
guaranteed
but
with indirectness
you will both lose
the argument will live on in perpetuity
the argument will succeed
