New Guy

 

 

The new guy came – but, oh, the game was old!
The moves boiled up from ancient memory
And all the bogus warmth was tombstone cold.
The new guy came – but, oh, the game was old!
Reviewing hoary tales that Homer told,
The new guy strove to get us to agree.
The new guy came – but, oh, the game was old!
The moves boiled up from ancient memory.
