The quitting game

Ever played the quitting game?
It’s the hang-in game reversed:

I quit – you quit,
and there’s nothing left.

It’s a fast one
and works well

with players of like mind.

    Succinct and true – but only with that big “if” in the last line.

    Like minds are a definite need for the game to work. Life would be so easy if we all just backed off a bit.
