Aki Basho 2018 Honour Tanka Day Nine: HAKUHO (9-0)


[Hakuho manhandling last basho champion] 

had a nice tanka 
about Hakuho's return, 
but lost that shit 

fuck it though, suffice to to 
say Hakuho's the greatest 

Mitakeumi may 
win basho when the bigger 
stars are laying out 

but Hakuho proved he's still 
the fucking man when healthy 

stood patiently as 
Mitakeumi thought about 
how to finish this 

but ultimately for naught, 
since Hakuho's the greatest
