   Here come morning and her brisk assailants

We'll take the highway to where loss and gain stand side by side

To where old men with their K of C jackets gasp for luck

To where addiction lies in a new manner

Here the animals are starved, cursed, and acclaimed

This is where men have lost their fortunes,

and children regard for fun

some smile

some frayed

I'll stand and scrutinize this hero of the poor

Did you win?
