To Argue the Toss

Wrangle… to entangle your tongue with a persistent antagonist
To mangle angry words with an opportunist
Or cling to the rocks, ignoring the knocks
while you argue the toss with the surf-surging sea

  4. I love your word choices for this one, and the fun offbeat rhyme scheme, and that last line with the twisting words. And all in 33 words. Excellent! 🙂
