the race
The race with no end,
Mine has begun.
Ahead  many chasing a prize,
None will claim their own.
A race without rules,
A taken short-cut, a step backward.
A race with no end,
Aligned,Arrayed, Arranged?Nope.
Like sea men in a sinking vessel,
Order is not of the essence.
The fittest will survive. The strongest will last. The smartest will excel. This race will not end. Consequences will be felt in this  race without an  end
