In a game where the goal is to do some harm,
One may have guessed a player’s mindset dotty
Although such an assumption could prove shotty.
Fighter’s bring pain, but there sportsmanship is a charm.
A mentality brewed, training martial arts
Acquired hardened bodies, as well as smarts.
Wrapped in a blanket known as the hurt business
Much goes unnoticed, which is the game’s richness.
