The Underdog

                                                Anybody, who is struggling,

Is my people

The one with the color purple,

Who will one day earn and own the ring.


I love fighters, who are not backstabbers,

I don’t like haters or fake lovers,

I adore freedom fighters

As I abhor bullies and predators.


I love the underdog,

Who works smart, trains hard

And who fears neither fire nor fog.


That doesn’t mean I like Mr. or Ms. Frog,

The one who will commit fraud

In order to win like a casuistic coward.
