I don't know what to say about this one.

I thought I could box,

But when I entered the ring,

I got a blow below the belt.

As quick as a fox,

I took a swing,

That even the audience felt.


The referee said, ''Not so low!

Another one and out you go!

No kissing on the cheeks!

This is not a contest for boxing freaks.''


I got a couple of jabs in,

But a right, staggered me some.

I came back, and gave one to his chin,

He said, ''Where did that come from?''


I heard the bell,

And I almost fell,

But I stayed on my feet,

And dizzily I went back to my seat.


In the next round

He laid flat on the floor.

Then I heard the sound,

Of the spectators calling out for more.


It was all over,

I defeated the 'boxing lover'.

His fans were in pain,

They will not watch him again.
