The Boxer

In a corner stands a boxer,

His anger and his rage begin again.

He will not give in,

But the guy ahead of him

Needs an uppercut to the chin.

Don’t back off

Don’t back off

The audience goes wild.

See my suffering,

Is that not fun for you?

A bloodied face and a broken nose,

So I pick up the pace.

You don’t get paid overtime rates,

Prize money is at stake;

A few body shots

But my right hand is really hot

So my trainer says.

Even though I broke my arm

Thought I would never fight

Again.

I see my opportunity,

The brutality of this game

Beggars belief.

So I put him down

Take the cash

And walk away.
