His work partner often bashed

The faith folks had in the Bible…

With “logic” he would lash

Out with no chance of their survival.

The one sitting on the side

Didn’t dare interfere but in jest…

Sadly he’d sit and hide

As the other would sarcastically molest.

Remember the movie, M*A*S*H,

Where Hot Lips’ shower wall fell down…(?)

The man sitting on the side

Felt like the nurses sitting on the ground.

Perhaps each of them, too, had

Gone through the same demeaning…

With tired eyes they observed,

As Hot Lips off her lover was weaning.

The next thing we see is a tarp

Moving suspiciously out of a tent…

A man had started to “love”

Her and that’s how the movie went.

Some people can rarely stand up

To the ones who keep knocking down…

A price is paid for acceptance,

Overwhelming domination may drown.
