These are really interesting ideas but rather on the wrong track. :)

I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Toady is correct :) Though CG's idea is fantastic and I wish I'd thought of it first.

Ah that was great! Never would have thought of it^^

If I understand correctly, it's my turn now, so here goes again:

When it's in the dark, during a show, to remain silent take care.
It's a place where you run to put a sphere in a square.
It's where some of us outrageuos opinions share.
It's half of a way to get high up into the air.
It's even on a hitter's wood, beware.

What is it?

(Sorry, Yoda wrote some of those!)

Yes, Tusky's guess makes sense. My other thought (which is clearly wrong from your hints) was:

In terms of feedback, I think it's generally strong and basically works. I'd consider tweaking line 1 (mainly for scansion) and 3 (because political wings are usually treated as adjectives which will confuse people looking for a noun). The last line also could be shifted because you're asking people to guess "flight wing" twice, once in its own right and once for a bat, which isn't ideal. Maybe...

"While you wait for your cue, then be silent, take care,
In this place where you run to put spheres in a square.
If we're on the same one, then opinions we share,
And with two we've a way to get high in the air.
It's even on a hitter's wood, beware."

Still not sure of last line but I think the above preserves the ideas whilst being a bit neater (in my mind at least, others may disagree).

All you that compete
With victory a desire

You that may gather
To plot and conspire

No longer a guage
To reach destinations

Make an alleigance
And unite the nations

thank you very much for the feedback : )

good to know about the political wings being more usually used like adjectives!
thinking about it, i agree with your point about guessing a physical wing for flight twice...
in general, it's maybe a good idea to not have quite as many different lines, all of which could be the solution all by themselves.
perhaps i'll try and describe individual meanings longer, who knows^^
