No Long Game

He never really had a game at all.
He goes by gut instead of strategy.
His long and short are both inanity.
His attitude is negligence and brawl.

His notions, unoriginal and small,
are toddler images of potency.
He never really had a game at all.
He goes by gut instead of strategy.

We know that evolution favors gall.
The slash-and-burn attain the victory.
But other rulers leave SOME legacy –
Old 45 bequeaths a caterwaul.
He never really had a game at all.

(Rondel)
