In response to prompt : Compromise
The Ultimate Compromise!
Two little kids were having a fight,
One tortilla between them wasn’t right.
They complained to a traveler passing by,
Who agreed to split it evenly, give it a try.
He tore it but one piece was larger,
None of them agreed to take the smaller.
The traveler ate part of it to make it even,
But he ate more of the one that was uneven.
The tortilla slowly was smaller in size,
The traveler knew he was unwise.
To attempt to help split it for the kids,
In the end he started scratching his eyelids.
The boys looked at each other in surprise,
This was certainly not a good compromise!
