Today’s Short #Poem 036

Like some teeny wannabe
pop singer
he used to wonder
what it would be like
to be number one
but he knew, everybody knew
he always knew
there was a league above him
where the cut and thrust
would kill him.
Every now and then
he makes a noise
and the guard dogs growl
and the boat rocks
and he climbs into your berth
for warmth.
