A stubbed toe attests the protest
was a lame inanity – its recipients
incensed by an impact delivered to
express who rules and who is to be
compliant; but as both donor and
receiver yelped evenly it’s guessed
humiliation was equally shared

Now the pair wryly limp affectedly,
eye each other through sceptical
brows knitted with suspicion it’s a
case of open warfare; which isn’t
new for adversarial acolytes of
what pre-existed them anyway
