The Daily Prompt states: Tell us about the time you threw down the gauntlet and drew the proverbial line in the sand by giving someone an ultimatum. If you’ve never handed out an ultimatum but secretly wanted to, describe the scene and what you would say to put an end (one way or another) to an untenable situation.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us COMPLEX.
Understanding, you lack.
One moment happy, agreeable,
Mean and argumentative the next.
There are days you are a joy.
Others flee when your name spoken.
A bear to work with.
No discussion, simply argument.
Your way, or no way.
I cannot speak.
No more energy to argue.
Every moment is a battle.
Yet you remembered by birthday.
Simplicity is not used to describe you.
Life is not simple with you.
I keep you around, because I need to.
Untenable, it may be.
