Great the event, abundant the strife, grand the war that advances.
So it's hard work to choose
when one strains violently,
while the other can twist around and bear down sharply.
But don't just sit where you are.
For the attacks of wit are many and varied.
So for what you have to quarrel over,
speak out, lay on, beat up,
the old stuff and the new,
and dare to say something subtle and smart.
