How many angels can dance
on the end of a pin?

Only 2
can bop and tap
if the angels are fat.

But 67
can waltz and spin
if the angels are thin.

Carol Ann Duffy

If boxing's the way that you altercate
Why not enter the ring as a welterweight?
But if your weight ain't below
SIXTY-SEVEN kilo
Then you'd better crash diet at a helter-skelter rate
