When either I, or one of my HS/college buddies were working our card skills - and big egos - out, we had a little saying, "I'm going down fast, but I'm miles above you." Usually, such boasting would be promptly followed by getting the needed contract exactly, or in my case, more likely, missing said contract by a hand. Anyway, I was "in a mood", so I fleshed out the boast into a little ditty, so for posterity's sake, and your perusal, here it goes:
"I'm going down Fast, but I'm miles above you.
I'm going down Hard, but it's okay, I'm tough.
It's not much comfort that you'll land before me,
It's not much comfort - but it's good enough."
A tail we don't need to wag
