A Million to One

Just slow down, consider the consequences
you may not be so enthusiastic.
Use discriminating taste, enjoy your euphoria,
in your climb to the goal.
You may wear yourself out
wiggling to and fro, with only a million to one chance you will make it.
Even if you do bury your head in deep and first,
another probably will push harder, eat faster,
wiggle stronger and squeeze in before you.
But your swimming about, incessant wiggling, following the scent perhaps
will pay off.
But keep trying partner, I’m rooting for you all, really.
It’s a million to one, so there is a chance.
Believe me, it was a real pleasure giving you guys the opportunity.
