I was in the yard this morning
and in stabbing pain, cried out.
No one heard, the world kept turning,
I'm on the card for another bout.
I'll have to step into the lists,
but my gloves seem made of lead.
And yet, I must now raise my fists
to block a jab unto my head.
Cancer's always fresh to fight;
why can't it be thus for me?
And BOOM, I take a rock-hard right
and see the stars of Eternity.
I won't beat a fighter of his heft,
but know I have some punches left.
This first appeared as a comment on Linda Stoll's blog post, 3 Realities Of My Blog Life I know For Sure...No, Make That 4.
Linda's correct reply was that Someone did hear, and is even now helping me hold up my arms.
Music from Rocky...what else?
