Hooah, hooray! We’ve done it again!
Cheer of the mighty and triumphant;
A call of the blind. We fools.
None gained here is too big nor too small.
Excite as you must, remaining vigilant –
Collecting wins where you can, far
Too few and between; scant junctures.
This too shall pass. And when it does
If you’re lucky enough to be on the
Upside, cheer for it then you will not.
For the survivor inside won’t outlast
The guilt that you feel; won’t erase
The pride that you’ve swallowed and
Choked on inside. Paying the price
For other men’s avarice in your blood.
