games played

won and lost

now we have

it all or at least


that’s what

we’ve been told\

by those

who really know


which is a category

in which

I do not belong

as I have

never really known


and only the pretense

of knowing

has gotten me

thru the years


but that is

a trick

I mustn’t let

become known

or common knowledge


there is just

way too much

at stake

to slip up


but on and on

I go with

my gameplan

that doesn’t

always work


It’s the only

thing that I

truly know

how to do
