Mr. Li

by B.J. Burgins

Such bravery
as real as
and punching bag-

revered as one
who took a stand,
thru adversity and dethroning,
taking it as a man.

The beautiful gladiator
possessed with
grace and style,
reciting those
playboy toasts
with an undertone
of poetry,
the Everlasting Mr. ALI!

Not Cassius but Muhammad
for all the world
to understand,
belt or not,
crowd pleaser
no doubt,
but to be respected
meant more
because He stood for something.
