The bullfight

The matador dons brilliant array
But the bull sees only red
The blood thirsty crowd gets carried away
And the bull is vexed till dead

See ya later, alligator.(just scrolled down and saw I had seen this one before. I keep clicking on you rhymed forms and see lots of oldies I already viewed)

    Barbarian sport, like mistreating woman and children or going to war for money! Good read Jon.

    We used to root for the underdog... now we glorify the invincible merciless sadist... A sign of the times??? Terry

    I like these four lines about bullfights. I was in Madrid a long time ago and they are very popular over there.

    Thank you Andrea. It's just a small poem to express mans brutality. There are other brutal sports. I just happened to pick this one.

    Yeah, that is so inhuman, Jon. Poor bull. I don't see how people can get fun out of agitating the bull. Good job :) Enjoyed!

    Sadly, we are not so different than the 1st century Romans.
