Second-best

2015 08 10 "Second-best" #OW

Second-best is the one behind first place.

Second-best looks like a silver medal.

Second-best sounds like, "Oh!  So close!"

Second-best smells like first place's ass.

Second-best feels like the agony of defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.

Second-best tastes like cold pizza.

Rhymes with Second-best: acquiesced, EST, SOS-ed, Trieste, best, second-best blessed, blest, unblessed, unblest abreast, blackbreast, breast, Brest, redbreast, unbreast chest incandesced

Always a brides-maid, always second-best
Condemned to be a well-wisher, cheering those more blessed
Never getting there first for the treasure chest
Feels like you'll be second-best until your final rest.
