He thought it had all been a dream,
But, instead, it was a nightmare;
All anyone could do was stare.
Awakening to a bright beam,
Circled by a medical team.
The goal was to take home the belt;
Reality caused him to melt.
Laid out flat on the cage’s floor,
Wishes closed like a slamming door;
The hardest punch he ever felt.
