A boxer's abbreviated life

His initial thoughts
Were OK,
But too many noughts
Meant a KO,
He had the panoply
Of A&E and ICT,
But his BP was low,
And the ECG
Was a body blow,
And in the stillness of AM
He had a clinical PM;
Upper cuts and lower cuts
To eliminate the ifs and buts,
And after his first bout
His life was counted out,
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 -
RIP and amen.

I don't know what a ICT is or for that matter an ECG (I do know about EKGs), I figured the rest out and think this is ingenious and darned entertaining. Sad though.

Very witty!
Roger McGough eat your art out.
Hope this isn't true for Amir Khan.
