Hatsu Basho 2018 Honour Tanka Day 8: CHIYONOKUNI (2-6)

[Chiyonokuni brutalizing Okinoumi] 

a good old-fashioned 
sumo match slobberknocker, 
that’s all this shit is 

two nearly naked big dudes 
slap-boxing and grab-assing 

please, no disrespect 
is intended by my words; 
sumo is supreme 

football? pro wrestling? fuck that 
weak corporate fascism 

is sumo corrupt? 
sure, why not; what upon Earth 
for centuries ain’t? 

despite this, deeply layered 
pageantry covers all flaws
