You Did Not Come In The Winner - Poem by Francis Duggan
You did not come in the winner though second place is okay
And next time you'll go one better tomorrow is another day
Not everyone can be a winner as you and I well know
So get back on the training track and have another go.
The next time you may be the winner and to honour your renown
We'll have a big party for you and a bonfire in the Town
And you'll feel so proud and happy when we'll drink to you a toast
And victory is only for the one who wants it most.
You did not come in the winner and though gallant in defeat
The next time you will find out victory is far more sweet
And for you we'll have a party and your praises we will sing
Since to our Street and our Suburb great honour you did bring.
You did not come in the winner but better luck next time
And you might be the person to inspire the poet to rhyme
For to fully enjoy victory you first must know defeat
And next time 'twill be different since this time you were beat.
