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?
