Just A Lesson - Poem by Chris Jibero

The bullying fists of deceit
Cloaked with love
Could batter your study frame
When you leave yourself unprotected
Against their ferocious jabs
Because you erroneously think
That the rule of the game
Are plain like open palms
Waved cheerfully and confidently
By football players at their ecstatic fans
Before the commencement of a match

But truth is
Never lose your head
Knowing that every story told in love
And all moves made lovingly
Must be weighed carefully
Against the motive of the player
So you can stay on top of your game
Thereby avoiding further pummeling
In this race whose gold trophy
If ever won
Is just an experience.

(c) Chris Jibero.
