Championing The Unlikely Hero

 

there's the tennis player between points
perfecting conservation of energy

(factory/warehouse operatives 
practise comparable economy)

I know
there's the scream of bodies stretched beyond endurance
roars of victory 
if victory comes
we all know well from every bulletin
but the hero of this tale 
has no facial expression
and no response for the baying crowd
only between rounds
could the fighter find these words

Wonderfully and descriptively put. Sometimes we fail to realise just how much stress the bodies of professional sportsmen and women take.
Nice one Adam
