The Winner Is Always The Hero Or The Heroine - Poem by Francis Duggan

As in all types of sport as in all codes of football
As in all aspects of life the winner takes all
Of the glory the adulation and the fame
And the loser left with the tag of the forgotten name
We cannot all be winners as the wise one does say
But the winner is always the hero or the heroine of the day
In sport as in life none does wish to be beat
And it takes a brave person to smile in defeat
The praises of the winner the majority sing
And losing it is quite a humbling thing
Their disappointment at losing few can ever hide
Disappointment at their loss of ego and a dent to their pride
The winners do laugh and smile as they celebrate
Whilst the losers looking sad are resigned to their fate.
