The Underdog

Why is it no one goes,

for the underdog?

The odds are always,

stacked against him.

Know one wants,

to be the underdogs friend.

They only want,

to see him loose,

again and again.

So why does the underdog show,

if he knows the chances,

are that he will fail?

Maybe because,

he knows that it is worth it,

or because they know,

that there is a chance.

When they are down and out,

and they are loosing,

They come back,

and win in the end.

    In British culture we often support the underdog. They will surprise you sometimes and win.
    Good write.

      Thank you. Lots of people in my country unfornately like do what we call, 'jumping on the bandwagon' (going for the best team at the time). I don't care for that.
      Thank you for your comment.
