Though Losing Is A Thing - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though losing is a thing anyone would not choose
For one for to win someone else has to lose
Such is life or words to that effect as some like to say
There must be winners and losers since life is this way
The winners of Olympic silver and bronze medals their stories will be told
But they are not as famous as the one who wins gold
The joy on the faces of the winning team does say it all
The same in life as it is in football
There is not much to laugh about for a refugee
The losers in life know of dire poverty
Among human beings so much inequality
In a fair Human World this never would be
There are winners and losers in the race for fame
And in all things in the Human World it is the same.
