14 Feb
The welter-weight world champ wore
his wide-waisted ornate belt
while stumbling down the inner-city alley
after soaking down a half a keg of bud
the cauliflower-eared specimen
was seen by a one-eyed cat
who wondered at the spectacle
while munching on a brittle fish-bone
atop a dented garbage can
who said to itself, my my, these big-headed humans
should know better than to scrap and scrape
like us who survive by the law
of claw and fang.
