Removed from his feet and sent toward the heavens,
Like a bubble of flesh and bone aimed for space,
Return to Earth, Richter scales hit elevens;
A well-executed slam, a thing of grace.
The crash to the mat, a moment of suspense,
Along every nerve pain is sure to dispense.
It’s safe to surmise the contest has been won;
The question: the everlasting damage done.
