PLOGS BELOW (JML's Poetic Commentary)

Float like a butterfly
Sting like a bee
I am The Greatest
Muhammad Ali

Champion of the World

Dance around—
Find the geography
Take your time

Left hook—
Hit the temple
Hit the chin

Your opponent—
Make a prediction
Psych him out

Put Allah first
Train second

The people will talk
Saying dirty things
Talk is talk

Everybody knows
Sonny Liston got
Sent to the hospital

Bleeding and everything.


In honor of Muhammad Ali
On his Feast Day February 25, 2017
The anniversary of the day Champ
Knocked down Sonny Liston to become
The Greatest Heavyweight Champion


Muhammad Ali VS. Sonny Liston I (25.02.1964)
