This is for my cherished best friend. (He knows who he is.) Always fight the good fight, never give less than 100% of your totally awesome self. Love you, man.

The nights you fight best are
when the game is fixed,
when the crowd screams for your blood.

The nights you fight best are
on a night like this
as you chase a thousand dark rats from your brain,
as you rise up against the impossible,
as you become a brother to the tender sister of joy

and move on regardless.

~~ Charles Bukowski

Fight the Good Fight
