VICTORY Herbert Kauffman

You are the man who used to boast.

That you’d achieve the uttermost.

Some day.

You merely wished a show,

To demonstrate how much, you know.

And prove the distance you can go.

Another year we’ve just passed through.

What new ideas cam to you?

How many big things did you do?

Time…left twelve months fresh months in your care.

How many of them did you share?

With opportunities and dare.

Again, where you so often missed?

We did not find you on the list of makers, God.

Explain the fact.

Ah no, t’was not the chance you lacked!

As usual- you failed to act!
