Victor’s sonnet

No matter what you do winning really feels great!
You just cannot beat that feeling when you have won.
It is a shame that feeling comes crashing down the next time Fate brings you new experiences of failure and defeat!

Victor’s sonnet

There may be pleasure in some furtive sin,
But tawdry things are not quite as they seem.
The greatest pleasure here is when you win.
Yes winning, winning, winning is supreme
For there’s nought else may equal such a thing!
The pleasures of the flesh they soon abate
And Death awaits us all with his dark sting.
Though all of us ought know this is our fate,
Yet while we live and while we fight and strive
Though all of our allotted time be brief;
The victors are the ones who truly thrive!
Yes Death will come at last just like some thief.
To gain much here for your own kith and kin
Means your bloodline is better placed to win!
