The Champion Boxer (limerick)

Updated on January 30, 2015

I learned how to box at the gym

The workout I went through was grim

I’d learned all the blocks

At school of hard knocks

Till I’d pack a box to the rim

      If that fellow can really pack a box to the rim,

      Then he needs to work for the New York subway system.
