Prepared, hardened, but there’s still shock;
Trouble ensues, combos flying,
Body and mind think they’re dying.
Bludgeoning from a cinderblock?
Bones dipped in steel hand out a knock.
His eyes lost in desperation,
Tries to move, but hesitation.
A rapid shift from here to there;
The end is near, sighs of despair.
Rules stopped his annihilation.
