Grudge match

It’s that time of year again, 
When the deer are locking horns again 
Like politicians, gearing for a fight. 
Grappling for dominance, 
They begin with a courteous lick and a grunt, 
And then engage and twist and try 
 To pull each other down;
A pointless exercise from my perspective, 
After which they lie down in my yard 
And take a nap. 
Unlike Republicans and Democrats, 
They don’t seem to harbor grudges…
