R.I.P.: Muhammad Ali ~ 1942-2015

Muhammad Ali  ~  (1942-2016)

He was the Elvis  
of thump;
the Allen Ginsberg
of professional fisticuffs.

There has been
no swallowtail so pretty,
no bee with such sting,
no dancer more agile.

On the roster of champs
there was nobody bigger.

And, trust me, no Viet Cong
ever called Ali “nigger.”
