Draft Away

Out the gate
and already you’re behind.
That’s how it’s gonna be, then?
That’s how you’re taking it?
This is what you’ll make
of the opportunities
put before you
this time
this year?

Too slow
too late
a day short
and a dollar behind.

This is how it always is:
catch up
from the starting pistol.
It is the only way
to build a proper head of steam.
It is the only way
to ensure a strong finish.
