The Winner of What

In the darkest of days
In the strangest of ways
We come together to commiserate
 
Share stories and tragedies
Mine is worse than yours
Yours is worse than mine
How can I compete with that?
 
Why is it that we should be in competition?
For the winner of the cup
Of the worst tragedy to befall
 
What obsession do we have?
To this be our victory
But the pity of others to be ours
The attention of the listeners be won
