Also Ran - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
Why is it men must strive to win
The pleasure lies in taking part,
the simple joy of joining in
To finish last is no great sin.
So why not be an also ran
at least it proves that you can run.
You’re not ashamed to show you can
take part in anything for fun
Somebody must be champion.
Why worry if it is not you
He will be beaten by someone
and lose his place. They always do
Today he may hold pride of place
Tomorrow is another race.
