In the clearing stands a boxer,
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
But the fighter still remains.
Simon & Garfunkel, 1969
"I'm so mean I make medicine sick!"
Muhammad Ali, RIP (1942 - 2016)
