A roundel

Amity: a Roundel

My dear friend excels at the art of war
discreetly waged. Her insults aim to upend
my smug opinions. Endless fun for
my dear friend.

She smears one of my heroes to offend
me indirectly. Her sniping makes me sore
enough to make a sortie, quick. I bend

that missile back her way by playing mentor.
As if asked, I explain, rather than defend,
my views, ignore her sneers, and outmaneuver
my dear friend.
