Victory - Poem by jerry hughes

Did you see that?
What boss?
The way he drops his right
when he throws a left.
The next time he does, ping him.
Okay boss.

Now go in hard, bustle him,
and wait for the opening, alright?
I will boss.

How do you feel?
Great boss.
Good, nearly time.
Go get him tiger!
I'll get him boss.

The boys met mid-ring and touched gloves.
Fight!
The referee ordered.
He saw the left coming and the right drop,
just as his trainer said it would.

He threw a punch like a snake striking,
and felt his glove smash into his opponents jaw.
The boy crumple and didn't move.
'Back to your corner' the ref said.

I did alright, didn't I boss?
You did alright, kid.

    Well dramatized... Though in the given case I'm not useful like a judge...10...
