How does the poet portray team work in his poem?
The poem ‘Team Work’ beautifully portrays the value of team work. He talks about a group game. One’s own courage or a single action doesn’t tell him a hero. Games are not won by single man. The most important thing is how we co-operate with our team. Some may praise our individual talents. It’s because that they single us out for famous. But winning in the game, we need the support of our team mate. No one can get success with their selfish actions. It is the co-operation of everyone that determines a game’s or battle’s success and failure. We may like applauses. Apart from that, we have to concentrate our goal and develop our will power. Our will power helps our fellowman who seems to be hopeless at the time of our way to success. We should forget our selfishness till our game is end.
