Joe and Jack

Joe and Jack, Supremacy and Ambition, fought,
Though two hearts thicker than oneness.

Triumph smiled at Supremacy;
To poor Ambition, the face of Victory denied.

Morning shows the day, but not every day:
Fate played its unfathomable part.
It commanded Supremacy a wonder-heroic death.
It threw Ambition up to touch the pinnacle.
Ambition won the ultimate race.

The entire world saw and felt the truth.
But Ambition's loving admiration for Supremacy
And his oneness with his childhood "Supreme,"
No one fully knows, Save God.
