1 Race,2 Winners, Not A Tie


all by Tradition
and out of Honor,
or Fear, or
Honor And Fear,
one of which three
has one runner,
and two, three each:
Turning A Blind Eye
Suspicion
Timidity
Blackmail
Abus e
Neglect
and Political Correctness

one won and what also won
was Connectedness:
the one that picked
the one that was out of the one;
which was that one;
and, which three
were out of each of the two
