Loss Pantun

Monday’s NaPoWriMo challenge is a Pantun. The site says, “A pantun consists of rhymed quatrains (abab), with 8-12 syllables per line. The first two lines of each quatrain aren’t meant to have a formal, logical link to the second two lines, although the two halves of each quatrain are supposed to have an imaginative or imagistic connection.”

Here’s mine. Hope you like.

Grappling futile with a bigger fighter
One arm slips and his grip becomes tighter
My woman has left me, I know that she’s cheated
I am left choked up and defeated

good try there, at my place, the pantun is like a teaser, with the first two lines jokingly linking to a topic and the next two lines giving an explanation to conclude the topic :)
