Win Or Lose We Live On

We put it all out

laying it all

on the line

we cannot wait

we hope no factor

well negate

we refuse

the news

that we may lose

in denial we

do not hesitate.

When everything is

even every stride

going well we forget

that it takes just

once to enter hell

with our mouths

open wide our

mistakes cannot hide

we ask what happened

to the luck on our side

why all our glory

so blindly fell.

One day we

win one day

we lose the day

of which outcome

we cannot really

choose but we

have to know while

we star in the

show that one

day soon we

may blow a fuse.

There is no harm

in occasionally betting

on the farm so long

as we have the nerve

to keep a little dignity

in reserve so that

when the barn does

burn there are lessons

we can learn that from

out of the fire

we may rise to inspire

instead of going down

like a four alarm.
