DP Daily Prompt: Bone of Contention

Pick a contentious issue about which you care deeply about—it could be the same sex-marriage debate, or just a disagreement you’re having with your friend. Write a post defending the opposite position and then reflect on what it was like to do that.

My disagreement with my friend is equal pay for equal work. My subject is Tennis. This game is played by men and women all over the world, there are grand slam tournaments where men and women participate and are paid according to how many matches they win.

This is where I have a problem, men play best of five sets to win and women play best of three. I think there is a big difference in the matches played by men and women, on that basis I   think   women players cannot expect to be paid the same as men because they do not spend as much time on the court as men. My friend disagrees, she thinks the pay should be equal.

Now the Tennis association has decided to pay men and women the same amount. I think it’s wrong.

I wrote what I thought about the financial issue and am pleased with it.

Blogging Challenge: Letter W

Warehouses are filled with assorted stuff

Men and women cannot decide what they want

Wife says to husband picking anything is tough

They watch and they wonder what do they want!


Along came  kids dancing and prancing

We know how to tell you without thinking

Wow says the mom and the dad

We wish we could have more kids like that!


Upon arriving at the cash register

Out he took out his wallet to pay

Woe to me my bills  are stuck together

I wasn’t expecting this today!


Why is this happening he queried

Wife said honey, “I’m worried”

Who’d lend us some moolah

I’d lend you I’m Beulah!
