A Limerick, ' Bad Losers '


An advanced Advaitist of Vedanta
Won all the arguments he would enter,
But hadn't even opened his mouth,
When he turned and fled out of the house
Of bad losers who'd slay who they lost to.

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
