Plaza de Toro's

A Decima poem about bullfighters

The arena of the bullfight

The Matadors all sweat with fear

But to their vow they will adhere

Staring straight into the Bull's might

Knowing its the Toro's last night

A trick the matador uses

not without some bumps and bruises

For the Matador has man's wit

So for his life he will commit

Proving man's tactics he chooses

A short poem about a bullfighter using the Spanish Decima poetry format. I wrote it after watching a bullfight. It was a sort of traumatic experience to be honest, I might write about it. Anyway I blabbed on to make the word count.

About the author

Hywel Latimyr

I kinda suck at writing but I enjoy it

Anyway, here's a dumb little haiku:

The gunslinger draws

His opponent does the same

oh dear, the both died
