Studying New Maneuvers - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Where is your prized horse?
The one that leads the pack,
Whenever I am on the track...
Just to practice.

Where is your prized horse?
The one you let loose to run the course.
To distract with an attraction,
To have me viewed by the others...
As the one to beat.
After you believe,
The releasing of your prized horse...
Should first be the one to wear me down.

Where is your prized horse?
The one that leads the pack,
Whenever I am on the track...
Just to practice.
Or have you come alone to take notes.
Get chummy and share a few jokes.
Believing I have an ego,
Unaware of every detail of my doing.

Where is your prized horse?
Studying new maneuvers,
To undo what comes natural to me?
