Another Poetry Spasm

Practicing three hours a day
Through wrist pain that won’t go away
In addition, my elbow and shoulder
Are wrecked (though the ice makes them colder).

I don’t mean to sound like a whiner
Since these are, after all, fairly minor
Compared to what befalls some jocks
Hey, luckily I can still walk.

For sure, my morale is not bleak
There’s a fight in Seattle next week
At the mention of this lovely battle
My epees spontaneously rattle.

But I’ll need to start using more ice
And advil and everything nice
If that fails, I might have to go Vader
With the robotic limbs and lightsaber!
