Follow the Screams for Blood

The venue gasps in furor as blood trickles;

First, it’s slow, but now the flood gates are open.

Fighting for stitches and a stack of nickels. 

Without joyous gore, there’s nothing to rope in.

Bring back Roman Times, the sport’s pearl of wisdom;

Detractors protest this athletic kingdom.

If glittering on TV or underground,

Fans will often flock and build the loudest sound!
