The Game

It’s not about how one plays the game.

It’s not about the taking part, stiff upper lip, wipe your mouth and walk away.

It’s only about winning and counting the bruises that mark the body at the end.

The more scars, the harder the battle! The deeper the smile the sweeter the taste of victory!

Let those who wish to participate for glory’s sake, or to see their name written in lights, quake on mention of your name.

Let those who played ‘well’ with their misplaced sense of honour intact, bury their pride in the very mud your boots churned over and spat over virgin blades.

It’s not ‘play up, play up and play the game’ it’s cut and blood, aching bones, heaving lungs and proud pain!


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
