the home team (humanity)

I root for the human race
as I root for the home team
I want them to win, sure
it’s good for business
my tips are better

but I am not going to wave a flag
or wear a jersey
or buy tickets to a game
my support is wholly moral
I do not actually have a stake

win or lose does not affect me
life does not hinge on that
home team, country, race
win, lose, draw
I’ll watch, maybe

but don’t ask me to care
and don’t ask me to play
happy to sit back from the game
watch two sides in battle
competing for… whatever
