This reprinting of the original, unchanged 1928 poem features dynamic, commissioned artwork by Eric Kriek that conveys the story of Pansy, an up-and-coming black prize fighter who takes on all comers. When he was in the ring, 'It was over before you knew it. He'd carve you up like a leg of mutton. And drop you flat with a sock on the button.' Pansy's complicated love life leads to prison and his career subsequently takes a nosedive; but he continues to box until the fateful night his fight managers and opponent triple-cross him and he meets a grisly end at the hands of a vengeful gang.
