City Boxer

walking bloody
damp and muddy
making change for scars
rigging games
exchanging names
taking bets in bars
slip your tongue
around your lungs
and preach to lesser scum
live the dream
and drown the steam
in sterile shots of rum
tie your laces
work your faces
tell the biggest lie
dance with punches
shake the touches
sell them all they'll buy
smokes for dollars
shots for hollers
bring the donkey down
you can manage
tear the bandage
off the wretched town
