It’s all a Game

Someone’s great lake is another man’s pond
Someone’s tall brunette is another man’s blonde
Someone’s feather is another man’s chain
Someone’s loss is another man’s gain.

Someone’s cold wind is another man’s breeze
Somebody’s itch makes another man sneeze
Someone’s black coat is another man’s vest
Somebody’s worst is another man’s best.

And it’s all
It’s all a Game

Someone’s corner is another man’s line
Someone’s paycheck is another man’s fine
Someone’s garment is another man’s fleece
Someone’s battle is another man’s peace.

And it’s all
It’s all a Game

Someone’s silence is another man’s talk
Someone crawling helps another man walk
Someone’s yearning is another man’s bore
Somebody’s truth is another man’s lore.

Someone’s calling is another man’s fear
Someone’s “far away” is another man’s “here”
Somebody’s rise is another man’s fall
Someone’s “nothing” is another man’s “all”.

But it’s all
It’s all a Game
