In A World Of Winners:
For the winner 'tis not easy to be humble since victory does taste so sweetAnd as for the one who did not win 'tis hard to be gracious in defeatIn a World of winners and losers the winners only seem to countAnd the tag of the gallant second to nothing does seem to amount, In a World of winners and losers the winners we do glorifyAnd set them up as a good example that others they ought to go byBut we never look on them for their sense of values or ask to their higher selves are they trueThe truly good overlooked by the masses though credit in heaps they are due, So many so called winners in life are defective a false face to the World they showThey may seem the big winners in our eyes but little about them we knowWe pigeon hole people by money since money adds to social powerBut when you look at your garden flower bed the weed there does outgrow the flower, The glory it goes to the winners and always for them the encoreAnd it is a World for winners one might say we've heard that before
No emails from rw or tw so i,m thinking....
i,m still losing...........
The world has me down and it's keeping me there; I don't get a chance. Oh, the world is unfair! When a fellow is poor then he can't get a show; The world is determined to keep him down low."
"What of Abe Lincoln?" I asked. "Would you say That he was much richer than you are to-day? He hadn't your chance of making his mark, And his outlook was often exceedingly dark; Yet he clung to his purpose with courage most grim And he got to the top. Was the world against him?"
"What of Ben Franklin? I've oft heard it said That many a time he went hungry to bed. He started with nothing but courage to climb, But patiently struggled and waited his time. He dangled awhile from real poverty's limb, Yet he got to the top. Was the world against him?
"I could name you a dozen, yes, hundreds, I guess, Of poor boys who've patiently climbed to success; All boys who were down and who struggled alone, Who'd have thought themselves rich if your fortune they'd known; Yet they rose in the world you're so quick to condemn, And I'm asking you now, was the world against them?"
Right, last chance to lose, and some nice stuff not to win too.
Now we have to wait until the New Year for our continued Loser status to be confirmed.
In the meantime, Merry Christmas, my fellow Losers, and I hope you enjoy all the socks, slippers, and other stuff you don't want
Merry Christmas Losers, may you not get everything you want for Christmas!
(actually, I could do with some new slippers....)
Pish. Lost again.
Curse you Michaela Graham of Batley. You have won twice!
Merry Christmas one and all (apart from those Bloody winners)
Losers hold your head up high and you will always have the respect of your fellow losers
