The Sheik Tugboat Story - PART 8

July 11, 2020

 

PART 8

 

The next day

Wrestling Challenge

In the squared circle

Battle Kat

The Flying Feline

Looking for an opportunity

Wanting to become

A Star

Make an impact

Become the figurative cat’s meow

Facing off with

An enhancement talent

Flying

Running

Rolling

Striking

Evading

Very talented

 

Midway through the fight

One sided by the Kat

Out comes

The Fearsome Foursome

Of course

The Iraqi Warship

Leads the way

Championship

Over the shoulder

The Sarge

With a bag

In his clenched right hand

The champ

Slowly

But with a purpose

Climbs the steps

Practically stomping

And enters the ring

The enhancement talent

Decided voluntarily

To take the L

Running away

A countout loss

The J-O-B

The champ

And his cohorts

Bulldoze themselves

To the center of the ring

The General screaming

Yelling

Bordering on insanity

Demanding the mic

From the Fink

Once given up

The Sheik

Headdress perfectly placed

A look of disgust

Upon his face

Starts to speak

To the WWF public

 

“The World Wrestling Federation

Refuses to give me respect

Give me props

Their refusal

Has forced me to

TAKE OVER

AND DOMINATE

Ask the Warrior

Ask Nikolai Volkoff

Ask Hacksaw Jim Duggan

ASK MEAN GENE OKERLUND

I will rule the WWF

With an Iraqi

Iron

Fist

And I know

That when the Hulkster

Your American hero

Goes down in defeat

The destruction of

Hulkamania’s demise

At WrestleMania

There will be NOTHING

To stop us

NO ONE

To upend me

NO WAY

To eliminate my title reign

Because after March 24

All of you wil

Be forced to realize

TUGBOAT

AKBAR!”

 

The Colonel

And the Sarge

Clap in approval

The General

Ranting and raving

The Sheik

Stoic and serious

Scowl on his face

BUT WAIT

Just as quick

As the rant finished

Right in front of

The Fearsome Foursome

BATTLE KAT

He never left the ring

He stayed in the corner

Quiet

Cunning

Biding his time

Now he is in the face

Of the champ

And the entire army

The fans are excited

Could this Kat

Take down the Superior

Iraqi Warship?

The Battle Kat

Takes his boot

The proverbial claw

And drags it horizontally

The proverbial line in the sand

The Sheik looks stunned

Perturbed

A little amused even

The Tugger removes his headdress

Takes his Prisoner of War

The WWF championship

Off his shoulder

Down to the canvas

He signaled

The Sarge

The Colonel

The General

All vamoose

The Tugger signals again

A motion

A non-verbal “Bring it on”

The feline obliged

And with all 9 lives

Went all in

 

The Sheik threw a haymaker

DUCKED

Kick

Kick

Kick

A bounce off the ropes

Front dropkick

Back off the ropes

The Sheik throws a line

DUCKED

The Kat comes back off

Sheik throws another one

DUCKED

Roll under

Quick like a cat

One more bounce back

Another front dropkick

The Sheik looks a little stunned

Quickly

Battle Kat springs to the top

And flies

Claws out

Body extended

Cross body block

CAUGHT

BIG POWERSLAM

The feline lost six lives

The champ bounces off

Comes back

Jumping

Up high

Full extension

BIG SPLASH

Two more lives gone

 

Suddenly the Sarge

Opens the bag

Hands the item to the General

Adnan holding up

For Tugboat to see

A YELLOW SHIRT?

The Sheik grabs it

Which leads to a

Discovery moment

For all the fans

Grasping in shock

A HULK RULES shirt

The Tugger looks down

The Battle Kat

Prone

Vulnerable

Smushed

Bordering on lifeless

 

The Sheik takes the shirt

Draped over

The poor feline’s carcass

Sheik gets enraged

A bounce off the ropes

Jump high

Legs extended

LEGDROP

Crushed

Flattened

The end of the Battle Kat

 

A round of applause

From the Army

As the Tugger picks up

His WWF championship

Stands over

An upstart

Now downtrodden

Dream

Over

As the Sheik reigns

SUPREME

First the American flag

Now a HULK RULES shirt

What level will

This Warship

Not stoop?

The war isn’t over

Not even close

But the Sheik Tugboat

Has won another battle

He is in firm control

Of his own

DESTINY.
