    Very descriptive and, sadly, very true. I've been to one bull fight and it still makes me sick when I think of it.

    Lances pierce;
    the excruciating pain pours,
    and satisfaction fountains,


    Horrific ending.

      Thank you so much dear Hellon for your words and for the nomination. You are quite supportive to new members and that speaks volume about your personality. It is indeed a horrific sport.

    This is very good indeed. You seem to be able to pull wonderful imagery out of thin air and it's a pleasure to read.

    As Hellon says, a sick 'sport' that should be outlawed everywhere.

    All the best

    Dude this is amazing and captures the horror of this so called sport. I watched it on TV once, it sickened me.

    Very well written

    This was a well written poem and one that brings home the horrors of bull fighting. I'm sure if we had our way, we would all want to see the end of this barbaric sport.
    The poet put into words so very well, the awful descriptive detail and painful ultimate death that the bull has to endure, just to bring some sort of perverted pleasure to those that watch it.
    A good write albeit a sad one.

    Judging comment

    One of the great things about reading poetry is the different topics that sometimes come to the fore. What a great topic to write about! It brings together the horrors of a sport (if you can call it that) that is adored my millions at humanities based level, blood and killing, that is abhorred by millions more for the total inhumanity of it. But more about the poem, a great write, great word choice and alliteration. You have used some very descriptive lines like “vampires with erectile excitements” that adds punch and imagery, a very good strong poem. Job well done.

    Sorry I haven't been on for a while so almost missed this gem. What vivid imagery about a cruel dark sport a well written piece that raises awareness of the pain and suffering relished by evil sadists

    Oh my god. I can't tell you how much i love this. It's rare for me to find the anger and sadness i find in this, that i agree 110% with. It's a beautiful piece about the morally screwed up world.

    Well done.
