- On behalf of all the soon to be competitors in Fall district
competition may I offer these words.........or maybe afterthoughts
Would that I could best the battlers waiting in the line
As they come together standing strong and bold,
And test the many players with the able and the fine
That would reach beyond capacities for gold.
But through elimination of the stalwart and the weak
Would I feign examination of my wares,
Is it possible to stand in recognition of the meek
Through all the cold admonishing and stares.
Until the last combatant has resolved his final try
Giving all that it is possible to give,
The judging may consider all the effort he may ply
With rewards to laud as long as he may live.
I stood before the panel with a lump up in my throat
As I sought within my mind the things rehearsed,
My fondest aspiration was to get a favoring vote
With determination we had finished first.
Bari.......ng up under the strain,
Chorus of the keys
