Game Theorem

This can’t go on
this thing we do.
We chase, circle,
square dance our way through moves,
hoping someone else
will slip first.
We race to blame,
playing the game,
accusing, suspecting
always suspicious of who did what,
who is behind it all,
seeking our defeat.

It cannot continue.
We don’t have it in us.
someone must fall
something must give
somehow, somewhere,
somebody will break
so some other folk can win.

considering how long we all played
and what bad sports we have been
it is so very likely
that when anyone wins
we all shall lose.
