Drawing A Narrow Line - Poem by Francis Duggan

In some art competitions as well as literature judges their criterion define
But on their definition of subject matter they are drawing a narrow line
And though on the merit of every winner everyone does not agree
The one who holds the winners cheque can smile in victory
And to the one who holds the winner's cheque the audience drinks a toast
And the winner can feel satisfied without having to boast
Of his or her achievements the judges judge you as the best
Of their narrow criteria you have withstood the test
And such is life one must suppose the best in their field succeed
But in the World of good example you too can also lead
The judges define the criterion and the winner they do decide
But you can lose with bitterness or you can lose with pride
Yet those who define criterion are drawing a narrow line
For as we know any good wine tasting judge has a taste for more than one wine.
