'The Bout' Genre: Narrative

My 'Opponent' Tries To Beat Me.
My 'Opponent' Tries To Defeat Me.
My 'Opponent' Tries To Delete Me.
My 'Opponent' Tries To Retreat Me.

My 'Opponent' Has Done It All To No Avail,
Because My 'Trainer' Has Trained Me Well.
Even When The Bell Sounds, Ding, Ding, Ding,
I'm Still In The Ring.

Between Bouts, Though Bruised And Bloodied,
I'm Still Standing On Both Feet.
Even After Every Uppercut,
I'm Still Standing Up.

Even After Every Low Blow,
My 'Opponent' Still Can't Get A TKO.

My 'Opponent' Fails To Beat Me.
My 'Opponent' Fails To Defeat Me.
My 'Opponent' Fails To Delete Me.
My 'Opponent' Fails To Retreat Me.
