PUNCH

I've fallen again.
Let me lie here a moment
to catch my breath,
gather my wits.
Then I'll get up
and take another punch.

Ha, my philosophy of life, it seems.

I can dig it.

Well Bob, as the cliche goes, it's not how many times you fall down that matters but how many times you get up.

Of course, that assumes you don't mind having a lopsided nose from taking a few punches.
