Last One Home Wins
























Last One Home Wins

First places
Not always quick to learning
Some come slow to the party
Others never grasp the truth
No matter the surface success

Longevity is built on foundations
Comprised of relationships
Earned and won
As sturdy as roman bricks
And not a glitzy flash on today’s pan

Foundation exists
As others bring home the bacon
And no trophy
At least not today

Rewards are fleeting
In the best of times
Yet those who seek them
Are rarely satisfied

Cling to your ideals
Tomorrows respect awaits.

Awaits.
