By the SS Oporto, Portuguese Line
Boxers sometimes try to stablize
The energy of their feet and their haunches
One topples! Knockout! Yet
He wasn't so hard hit. No it was I
Making a swerve or knocking back a wave
Unwitting. He gets up and tries to pit
His strength against a human force and mine.
I'll try, but can't do much, to let him win.
