Safe distance

History teaches me that
before we get too close
you will beat the retreat.

Before your dagger
touches my neck
and you're forced to

either look me in the eyes
or slit my throat
you will choose to

keep a safe distance.

  2. Ha! Now there is a lesson well learnt from history, and some are more inclined to put tail between legs than look a person in the eye.
