Whoever is Keeping Score
Regina Puckett

I botched catching that big, shiny brass ring
And ran head-first into the scorpion’s sharp sting
I washed out at being the best of the best
Answering yes to every false and true test
The world spins a little too fast for me to ever win
So whoever is keeping score will have to learn to bend
Because I’m never giving up just because things are bad
And I refuse to sit in the corner and let the world see me sad
