1 Race,2 Winners, Not A Tie


all by Tradition
and out of Honor,
or Fear, or
Honor And Fear,
one of which three
has one runner,
and two, three each:
Turning A Blind Eye
Suspicion
Timidity
Blackmail
Abus e
Neglect
and Political Correctness

one won and what also won
was Connectedness:
the one that picked
the one that was out of the one;
which was that one;
and, which three
were out of each of the two

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
