"He Tells Her," a poem by Wendy Cope (ignored by the Lounge).
"He Tells Her"

He tells her that the Earth is flat
He knows the facts, and that is that.
In altercations fierce and long
She tries her best to prove him wrong.
But he has learned to argue well.
He calls her arguments unsound
And often asks her not to yell.
She cannot win. He stands his ground.

The planet goes on being round.

Wendy Cope

1. And many people do argue that way.
"You're just wrong, because I said so." :(

2. The Lounge is like the back of the classroom in high school.
Great poem.

4. I mostly like the lounge...
It's where my peeps are at. :-). But it sucks that they ignored that - it's a brilliant poem.
