All youths have suicidal feelings
in developed/competitive societies,
where despair is the underside
feelings divide them, inside,
and every male has to be a winner.
Taboo about loss means that sharing
about being on the losing side
is characterised as unpatriotic whinging
-or worse, self adopted victim-hood-
by those for whom affirmation
is the sense that they never lose,
and never made a loser out of anyone;
those that lose do it all by themselves.
