Competitive Spirit

So much of life keeps score

From elections to sports

Competitive spirit

Churns in daily reports

 

Life’s clashing resistance

Much at too high a cost

All want to be winners

Loving brothers, now lost

 

Division without love

Life without sportsmanship

Forgetting our manners

People losing their grip

 

Imagine Super Bowl

Unresolved final score

Fans calling for justice

Final outcome called for

 

Pushing aside tension

Leaving muckraker’s trough

Muting all rhetoric

Turning life’s scoreboard off
