Spain is a fascinating country!

MADRID
A macho mix that is Madrid
Bullring in the center
Stifling hot in the summertime
Cold as hell in the winter!

Six doomed bulls charging
Faced by courageous men
Infinitely better in hopeless battle
Than killed in a slaughter pen.

Madrid more than this
Bullfights the public dole
Vibrant noise and nervous energy
Reflection of people’s soul

‘Tis as if catching up
Grateful breathing still
Delicate squeamish tourists
Cringing at a gushing kill!

Occasionally a pierced groin
A consummate arrogant master
Wounded beast to die anyway
Scoff at this disaster!
