argue

Here is my best explanation:

'row' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'about a rug with energy' is the wordplay.
'about' is an anagram indicator.
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'energy' becomes 'e' (physics symbol as in E=mc2).
'a'+'rug'='arug'
'arug' with letters rearranged gives 'argu'.
'argu'+'e'='ARGUE'
