"FOXY LAD!".....

poem by: Frank Byrne/Hornby..
Written on Aug 24, 2017

Boxing is now in his blood, a sport that he honestly loves,
Jack really does look the part, when he pulls on his 10oz gloves.
Ding! Ding!...The bell starts round one, in a second, he's up off his stool,
on his toes he's bobbin, an' weavin', seriously this kid is nobody's fool,
a straight left is thrown to the jaw, followed by a stinging lethal right hook!
another hard left hits the target, Jack Fox fights true to the book.
But maybe I'm just a little bit biased, because after all I am Jack's proud granddad,
as soon as the first bell starts ringing, I'm up shouting,....COME ON FOXY LAD!"
