    The premise of your poem is presented backwards and was therefore not immediately understood. Looking for a metaphor, I could not find one. Therefore I assume the meaning of your poem was straightforward as:
    Though seeming to rely on great skill to enter and win this contest, intelligence and luck are equally as important. If there is some underlying meaning to this declarative statement that would make it worthy of being called a poem, sorry but I did not find it.
