All we can do is wait
Helpless, powerless
As the long game plays out.

We are not participants
Muddied, bloodied
Who can change the final score

Umpires or officials
Bristling, whistling
Empowered to enforce the rules

Fans or spectators
Baying, praying
Who choose to watch, and will be entertained.

No. We are locked outside
Ignored, deplored
Knowing we have already lost.
