American Tiebreaker


Remember when
It was a ‘tie’?
Just didn’t get
One more over the line.

The dismay,
The heartache,
All that effort!
The other side unvanquished.

– – – – – – – – – – – –

But then the ken:
‘Win’ was a lie.
The sudden ‘get’:
We both coveted that line.

The praise
Like heartache:
What was fought
And by the other side relinquished.
