in girl scouts, they teach you sayings
ones you sing around the campfire
they’re supposed to teach lessons
“make new friends but keep the old
one is silver and the other is gold”
except no one remembers the silver
the second-place trophy
the insignificant
the old friend
not shiny and new
the old toy forgotten about
who needs old when new is readily available

i am silver
insignificant and old
forgotten and lonely
always 2nd place
