Wrestling the Tired Monk

old master
were you really a wrestler?
tell us of those days
tell us.

you novices want to hear
about locks, chains
sinew snapping submissions
ear grinds, grapples and pain

sore to the bone
holds cinched in tight
wrecked knees
and creaky old joints

old time shooting style
sweaty gym mat
bumps, fist thumps
twisted up broken dreams

blood on the floor

you don't want to hear about that


  1. Good one, Ollie. Our perspective so changes, looking back:)

  2. Nice commentary on maturity here. Our perspectives really do change don't they?

  3. I want to here about those days master! Weren't those the days when we were really alive?


Thanks for helping with the development of Olsonomics.
