Greatest Ali

Updated on June 9, 2016
Source


You discarded clay,

never to let anyone tow you away,

your anger, you slaved,

Hit it hard till it said,

'Greatest' boxer ever to play.

Mohammed Ali, you are here to stay.

Rarest of the rare,

Sportive to the core,

Determination to fight social barrier,

Taking the establishment to note its error.

A great sense of humour.

Ali you were super.

RIP.

      Thank you laxmi. We had a chapter in 7th standard. I was impressed then though i never saw a fight untik few years back. More than the fight his dermination to convert his anger against discrimination and his will power to fight establiahment against war in vietnam is awe inspiring. He prooved he was right and had no pride though was world champion. Where are such people now. What a great personality. RIP.

      A good tribute poem, Hari. Ali was a great man. His biography "The Greatest" is worth a read.
