POEM: "From The Dojo"

From The Dojo

It just got better
The training worked
Things are not the same
You came here ham-fisted
Tail between your legs
Arguing about commodities
Now the cost escalates
You are out of it my son
Eyes to the horizon
Please don’t make
The same mistake again
But should it happen
You will remember that
The training worked
Sit-ups did take notice
Push-ups away from folly
Chin-up pulling you away
The facing-grip was strong
Always running towards
And never away from
Makes the strike decisive.
