I Am A Desperate Trophy

(Based on a roll of the Taylor Mali's Metaphor Dice that he did on Joh Fugelsang's "Tell Me Everything" on SiriusXM 's Insight channel, broadcasted February 13, 2019. The metaphor they chose was "I am a desperate trophy'. Each guest poet on that program recited a poem they made up on the spot. I decided to do the same on February 14, 2019, the day I listened to that show.)


I am a desperate trophy

Longing to be possessed

Praised and put on the mantle

Gazed and gawked at

Envied and admired daily

However, no one will compete

To win me...

I'm not a game worth playing.
