Anticipation


Table performance,
Posturing!
Topped up to the brim;
From the game!
Into the realm of nonchalance.

Betrayed!
Apology;
To eat the humble pie,
Forward!
Dripped,
Overflowed.

Posturing!
To exhibit remorse;
Out, outing!
To address the issue;
Tense, sense!
Personified.

Arrogant,
Person, personified!
Wreaked upon,
Figured!
To the platform and to acknowledge the truth.

Anticipation,
An emotion!
To understand it,
With entitlement and superiority;
On and off the field.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
