Show Me A Good Loser And I Will Show You - Poem by Francis Duggan

Show me a good loser and i will show you a loser as some do like to say
And it is not easy for to lose in a gracious way
In a World where winning only seems to count
And being a good loser to nothing seems to amount
In life as in sports it is so much the same
To the winners go most of the glory and fame
People compete with each other for some form of success every day
Suppose this is how it is and will always be this way
That in the twenty first as it was in the twentieth century success seen as most important happens to be true
Though some will tell you it is not everyone's due
The name of the winners historians like to recall
And that anyone does not choose to be a loser does apply to all
Show me a good loser and i will show you a loser as some do like to say
And it is not easy for to lose in a gracious way.
