The Fighter:A Noble Art (Rebooted as Reqiuem For A Fighter ,3 Jan.2020)

Chico “The Bull” Torres
practitioner of the pugilistic arts,
was considered by his employers
the “Men” from Reno Nevada
as the best light heavyweight
prospect of his generation;
Chico would’ve gone on to challenge
the renowned Hagler and Hearns
and like them had his glory,
become beatified and transcendent
in the hearts of his compatriots,
but the moon crossing Sagittarius
made such a moment inauspicious;
repeated adrenalin thrusted blows
spurting fountains of haemoglobin
the viscerality of their acute pain
of bone on bone on bone
sending The Bull and his compatriots’dreams
crashing down down into canvass oblivion;
his brain torn
slashed kidneys bleeding
and oxygen failing,
for Chico “The Bull”Torres,
the moment of glory
had already passed.
