Theory of the glory

You have to be in the first place

You have to run at leopard’s pace

 

You have to slog till you drop

You have to be up again and hop

 

You have to forget the window of your room

You have to lose sight of morning, evening and noon

 

You have to count the hours of your sleep

exceeding which you can’t have a breath deep

 

You have to forget pleasure and time leisure

You have to work under stiff pressure

 

You have to be a slave of deadline

You have to be a front headline

 

You don’t need to have a dream

for your destiny I have foreseen

 

And in between all this if you steal a moment alive

Let your brain not heart thrive

 

Because you have to be in the first place

Because second place is a no place

 

Because you cannot be a blot on my glory

Because Darwin gave this theory

 

Because the Universe supports survival of the fittest

Because you cannot be a sob story to witness

 

Because you have to be my saving grace

Because you have to be in the first place
