This and That

This and That had a quick chat.
You go this way and I’ll go that,
balanced on the brim of a hat.

Said That, I which wish to set
up this neither forget nor forgive
any trespass near or far.

As far as that goes, replied This,
I’ll look forward to that there
reminder, and with That,

into the hat fell This,
and next,
out came That.

Thus This fell forward nearby,
while That fell far and away 
back, and this chat was that.

    These and those ?

    1. Joe Linker says:

      One on one is bad enough. But I may have seen a false thesis coming. And I know you know what those can do.

  3. 🙂 Have a joyful Christmas, Joe.
