World Wide Warrior 7
The day went on as usual
Until that very same night.
Braden and Jonathan wore out
The DVD copy of his fight.
But later on in the evening,

While Jonathan and Braden sat upstairs,
Watching some film and reviews.

And tore it open to read,
A handwritten message from Chris Magnus
Her shock and worry it did feed…
