Life’s not always fair … (Tanka Tuesday)
Cheat not on fair rules –
Give all every chance to shine;
Toe the starting line.
Toe the starting line –
Get set and ready to go;
When the horn doth blow.
When the horn doth blow –
All launch forth and must believe;
No one will deceive.
No one will deceive –
Nor assume any for fools;
Cheat not on fair rules.

Whist this is well out of date – it was inspired by Ronovan’s weekly haiku prompt Toe and Line.
