Who will win?

Well, that depends on if they’re…

in the ocean…

or on railroad tracks.

If they’re on a seesaw…

or in hot-air

balloons.

Roasting

marshmallows…

eating pies…

or having a

burping contest.

It depends on whether

they’re bowling…

shooting baskets…

or going off

the high-dive.

Running lemonade stands…

trick-or-treating…

or giving rides at a carnival.

It can depend on who

gets to pick first…

who names

the game…

and who deals

the cards.


But who wins

if they’re…

playing hide-and-seek…


or trying not

to get shushed?

Performing in a piano recital…

or playing Extreme

Zombie-Squirrel Motocross?

Exploring distant galaxies…

or sword fighting

on a tightrope…

or…

End of the line.
