Lawful But Not Convenient

A curious description in Holy writ,
some things are lawful, not convenient.
Applying to life situations has it,
allowed, but they are not expedient.

To share with verve, as the issue burns,
but attention giving takes a place.
Finding we have not allowed taking turns
shows up in falling of listener's face.

The conversational art brings rapport,
when one to another, our ear is lent.
One who seems willing to wait may get sore.
Ignoring is lawful, not convenient.

The giving and taking of thoughts bring us close;
expressions of humor or pathos are shared.
It's not only lawful, but sweet as a rose,
when mutual attention has shown that we cared.
