The fighting Gymnast (In monometer)

Behold

This

Ginger

Kid,

A mere

Teen,

Wearing

A gymnast’s

Garb,

Her feet

Bare, and

Her ankles taped;

In the wrestling

Ring,

She never

Amounted

To much,

Yet on

A balance

Beam,

She’s a queen!

 

Yes,

Unlike

The squared circle,

Flipping and

Tumbling,

Avails

Her much,

Even

More so

If you

Give her

A long

Staff.

 

Truly,

A sight

To see.

Behold,

How she twirls,

Swings,

Thrusts,

And parries

With her staff,

Combined

With

All her

Tumbling

and Flipping,

such moves

revealing

her impressive

skills.

 

To the

Audience,

She is graceful,

Yet

To her foes,

She’s dazzling,

Distracting,

And way

Too fast!

Even

Her old

Wrestling

Opponents

Are impressed

By her

Strange skills.

 

Can you

Take her on,

While

Keeping

Your

Balance

At the same

Time?

In her

Turf?

Hi Assaf, I like the heroic response of the protagonist, by bringing beauty but also defiantly triumphant excellence.

Thanks,
- Dave
