....The Title ^Fight....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Leaning against the ropes, eyes swollen half closed Its been a long fight.... Blood dripping from a dislocated jaw Body beaten and bruised; taking a few more blows Crowd screaming; colourful figures; cloudy sight?! Knocked down a few times but, not counted out yet Not yet; still standing to catch a second wind.... ~ My foe is fierce and relentless, the best in the world This worlds, undisputed heavyweight champ At least over most of Humanity; never lost a fight to the faithless!? Been the prince of his ring for thousands of years.... Almost had them carry me out; flat upon my back, in the early rounds Until the undefeated “One,” showed up and volunteered to become “My Corner ^Man.” ~ Been doing somewhat fair since yet, still, a tad bit fuzzy in my head.... Absorbing blows amid a fight like this but, I Am, still standing And I get my punches in also; sometimes, I even win a round or two?! My corner Man said; “The Real Champ.” ~ "Just wait for the right time, he'll open up, and when he does Then, put him on his back; hit him with a left and a quick right Another left another right and then, use your cut.... ....I promise you, I shall gladly count him out, for you ~ Just hang on, we've got him, right, where, we want him!?" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ....“The Title ^Fight”....

Yes, we're so grateful that, "The Real Champ" is always in our corner, propping us up, round after round; minute by minute... we only fall when we try to do it on our own, forgetting that the opponent is ruthless. Thanks for sharing this; you wrote it last year sometime, but it'll always be relevant! God bless you, always. Much love, annalise
