Whatcha Got To Lose?

Open admiration
is one present that
not many will say,
“Ah, too bad,

Although no king will admit it,
and no war college will teach it,
the all-and-forever,
best strategy is always this: 
“Don’t Have Anything To Lose.”


One guy used to say to himself,
“Hey, don’t look at me like that –
I know what you’re thinking,”
but he lied.


For his eldest son’s thirtieth birthday, the ole man had a piece of their lawn statuary tattooed with the words, “When it comes to dealing with yourself, a man who has any mercy – has problems.”
