The Greatest has gone ~ (For Muhammad Ali)


The Greatest has gone

He went for a round with God

Ali bombaye! I will never forget

The posters in the Indian barbershop

How we all admired and adored you

Looking so smart and invincible

Floating like a butterfly

Stinging like a bee

“No Vietnamese ever called me a nigger”

How they tried to blackmail you

Rob you from your dignity

The tremendous feeling of pride

That you gave us
