Sent to another dimension with a punch,
Or a shin, foot, elbow, or knee to the face.
Even with gloves, viewers hear a loud crunch;
Your senses shut down, blood’s all over the place.
Light fades to black as sparrows dance overhead;
Then, on the big screen, a fan’s bloodlust gets fed.
In extra slow motion, skin ripples, bones break;
A category of pain that’s sad to take.
