Sportsmanship

At the crux of human behavior

We pride ourselves on sportsmanship

Is the hunter the exception

Is the sport of hunting the exception

I know of no other sport

Other than hunting

Where the outcome of the sport

Is predetermined

Where sportsmanship has been

Reduced to a slogan

 

I know of no sport

Other than hunting

Where the use of equipment

Is in the possession of only one player

 

I know of no other sport

Where the joy in participation

Is only granted to one player

 

If hunting is a sport

Why does the hunter

Win all the time
