Brains Over Brawn

Brought to life from granite and into the cage;

Bright lights show the creases of every muscle.

A mystical form on a prizefighter’s stage;

Blood pumps through vein tracks, welcoming a tussle.

Punches and kicks land with the force of a bomb,

The grip of a gorilla held in his palm,

To gain the advantage, burn all of his air,

The rivalry ends when all the peacocking’s flair.
