I kept count…

I kept count,

One stroke for each score,

The bluish purple around my eye,

The limp in my knee,

One stroke for each score,

The red trickle down my nose,

The heaviness in my jaw,

One stroke for each score,

For every night I spent under a hospital light,

One stroke through four,

Even when the earth fell on my lifeless back,

I kept count, 

Now I am back to collect what you owe,

I kept count,

One stroke for each score.
