Dogs 2016

NO WINNING SEASON
(10/18/16)

we play
some splendid
games

financial

political

social

mental

emotional

sometimes
we even play
sports

some
play well

some
are honored

even
revered

but
they have
only won
within human
constraints

by limits
that will
not last

today
however
they reign

as others
strive silently
in the shadows

undistracted
by the fanfare

focused
upon a goal
that if reached
relegates them
to obscurity

forever

if they
do it
right
