The Thunder From Down Under

Poem by: Samrwcox1984

Summary

This is a poem about a boxing kangaroo. I got the idea from the "boxing kangaroo" cliche'
I've always been a big boxing fan so the poem was really fun for me to write.
The name i stole from my dog Rocky, not to be confused with Balboa, Graziano, or Marciano! hahaha.

The Thunder From Down Under

I'm telling you a story

you may not think is true,

a rhyme about Rocky

the boxing kangaroo.

*

He comes from the land down under,

he trains hard every day.

He keeps in shape - he's strong and fit,

for fights that comes his way.

*

Once he fought in England

against a wily fox.

He caught him with an uppercut

and knocked his socks clean off.

*

He fought a lion, big and fierce,

but Rocky was too quick.

He danced in circles 'round the ring

until the beast was sick.

*

He fought a Bengal tiger once,

it lasted fifteen rounds,

but Rocky beat him black and blue

before the cat could pounce.

*

He knocked spots off the cheetahs,

stripped stripes off zebra's too.

And once bashed an elephant

on a trip to Brooklyn zoo.

*

The thunder from down under

had fought a hundred fights,

but not a creature great or small

could put out Rocky's lights.

*

There's a reason for his toughness

and why he was so smart,

Rocky fought them with his brain

instead of his big heart.
