Getting Battered


Taking quite a battering
in the boxing ring
Sat with your cornerman…waiting for the bell to go
for the next round…it’s a horrible scenario
you’d rather be somewhere else…say at home with a hot cocoa
After another round of punishment
Return to your seat for treatment…on a bloody nose

In the towel goes…”I Surrender”
He’s a real contender
for the world title next year
Whereas you opt for a much safer occupation
A flower shop, stacking roses, boxing carnations…
