Kyusho Basho 2019 Honour Tanka Day Three: WAKATAKAKAGE (3-0)

the makuuchi 
debut of another young 
sumo rikishi 

twenty-four years upon Earth; 
grown life in grappling's clutches 

his first basho has 
begun with promise and strength - 
but life can be cruel 

how many young rikishi 
start strong but burn out promptly? 

the weight of broken 
dreams attacks the heart harder 
than red meat vices 

his chankonabe bowl's full 
right now though; enjoy it, prince
