Batter Up

I never really learned to play the game

So I was benched, or so I benched myself.

It’s curious. You’d think that rules are rules.

You never figure that they never mean

Exactly what they say or that they change

Depending on the situation, time,

Or place. So others played the game and won

Or lost. They celebrated or complained

How they were cheated, treated badly, lost

Because of others’ faults and should have won.

I wonder, do the losers know the rules

Are evanescent? I assume the do,

But if they do why do they still complain?
