Training Partners

You can sharpen your skills alone,

But the gym with partners has more:

Others who also train for war.

They’ll push a pace and set a tone,

Soon enough, you’re in the zone.

Your comrade, buddy, friend, and mate,

During practice may look like hate.

Being there to hold mitts or spar,

Friendly fire may leave a scar;

Preparing for a special date.

  1. I think if they had me training with them I would be called a Training Dummy, because I would be just plain stupid to even try this.Old, slow, and don’t want no mo.
