The Cost of Rounds

Livelihood bestowed in five-minute chunks,

If three rounds or a handful, there’s an ending.

Both muscular women and shredded up hunks

Have half a paycheck on the outside that’s pending.

Paid some to make weight, the rest is for a win;

Any union would find this pay rate a sin.

Breathe a sigh of relief upon the scale,

An MMA God/Goddess knows you’ll prevail.
