Crude Politics

When someone swings a crude 100-pound bludgeon at you, what do you do? Some people duck and hide. I swing back.

Some things happened at work today and I got caught in a massive political game. If there was some finesse in it, I would still be afraid of a knife in the dark. However, there was none of that and I was just totally pissed at the crudeness of it – what a waste of my time and energy.

Truly, I would have appreciated it if there was a knife in the dark. However, I could see this bludgeon coming from miles away. So, I had already taken steps to avoid it but the bludgeon continued to come. I guess that is why it is called a bludgeon. Since the bludgeon was aimed at me by a 1-tonne gorilla, I blocked it with my shield and swung back with my scimitar.

For now, I am just taking a step back and looking at the situation. If the bludgeon decides to try another swing, I will swing back with my scimitar for my blade was forged in Damascus and this time, I will not hesitate to take off the swinging arm.

PS: Finished playing Assassins Creed last month. However, I’m not really looking forward to the sequel.
