[Bards] The Goal

I always thought it was to have fun....
  But, one Man's fun is another Man's hell, at times.
  I shy away from the idea of THE GOAL. It's like THE DREAM, a pernicious phrase coined by a Bard in completely opposite of the meaning it has now taken on, like some mangled, misunderstood Shakespearean quote. Too many people invoke "THE DREAM" as their justification for lopping off legs and stretching arms and necks out of joint in an ugly Procrustrean bed. (Spelling wrong, I'm sure.)
  For the Kingdom Bardic championship, I would think THE GOAL would be to compete, and to try and win.
  For a Kingdom College, I am more wary. I'm not sure it could be made into a bed where all could sleep easy.
