Quieting Their Egos And Putting Out Their 'Lights'

It takes more than a winning attitude,
To actually produce a win.
Some believe it is owed to them.
Those accustomed to adulation.

And no one wins alone!
Some 'superstars' have found this out.
After unknowns have captured their throwns.

It takes more than a winning attitude,
To actually produce a win.
Some believe it is owed to them.
Those accustomed to adulation.

And overpaid folks,
Often provoked jokes...
When their talents and skills,
From them take a hike.

Overnight they might rise,
To heights of fame and glory.
But at a blink of an eye...
Their blessed gifts have been diminished.

And no one wins alone!
Some 'superstars' have found this out.
After unknowns have captured their throwns.
Quieting their egos and putting out their 'lights'.

'Where is that championship you promised us? '

~Well, I...er...um...uh.
Well...
Uh...oh...uh...er...~

'You can always blame it on the 'bling'.
And not the 'brawn' you didn't bring.
It doesn't pay to believe one's own hype.'

~Well, I...er...um...uh,
Right. Right! ~
Lawrence S. Pertillar
