In A World Of Winners:

For the winner 'tis not easy to be humble since victory does taste so sweet
And as for the one who did not win 'tis hard to be gracious in defeat
In a World of winners and losers the winners only seem to count
And the tag of the gallant second to nothing does seem to amount,
In a World of winners and losers the winners we do glorify
And set them up as a good example that others they ought to go by
But we never look on them for their sense of values or ask to their higher selves are they true
The 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 show
They may seem the big winners in our eyes but little about them we know
We pigeon hole people by money since money adds to social power
But 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 encore
And it is a World for winners one might say we've heard that before

Gis another loser's poem Slowfoot

The world is against me," he said with a sigh.
"Somebody stops every scheme that I try.

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....)

23/12/2011 at 11:04
I like slippers for Christmas.

Pish. Lost again.

Curse you Michaela Graham of Batley. You have won twice!

23/12/2011 at 11:45

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

23/12/2011 at 13:14
I hope I don't win the TW prize today - I'd have to actually consider doing a tri if I did!

Merry Christmas everyone and I promise not to mention the shoes I won ever again - or B's bra
