“So hot the struggle for a spot that it is won”
A quote from The Ballad Of The Proverbs – François Villon

with its backhand slaps
with its flashes of brilliance
with its combat boots
-isn’t for the faint of heart

We learn to dance in life
being quick on our feet
becoming adept with our arms

to block those slaps
to catch those flashes of hope
to grab those combat boots
