The Life Champion

THE LIFE CHAMPION

To take
Use up 
And run 
Is the aim of the life champion

A conscience?
Sadly the man on top 
Seems bred with none

He wants it all 
And of course it must be free
To work for it 
Is to the dishonest some sort of idiocy

He who tramples first 
Is sadly better placed 
To grab all of life’s gains 
With minimum conscious pain

Life it seems today is full of envy
Must we always crave?
To want what another has 
Is but Fair  
To those who know no sort of fraternity

To advance up the greasy pole
Acquiring the accruements of a life 
Filled with flattery and hyperbole
Is the aim of him 
Who everyone loves to scold

The one who masters this life
We of course do hold up as a secret ideal
His life philosophy we all covetously aspire to
Despite him never feeling the least bit guilty
For all he does to disadvantage society 

Be not fooled 
For this life is not easy 
If you plan ahead 
What may come may make you feel queasy

Play this roulette that is an uncertain life
Live as you may 
Who knows if the truth of existence may be found one day 

To be selfish and grafting 
Is To play the game of life 
Against humanities rules of fair play

Ultimately the guy who acts as a brother 
Will win the day
