Worse In Slow Motion

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.
