GOD BLESS MUHAMMAD ALI

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Jul 09, 2016

The angels surround the
church in a small U.S.A.
town,
On a sunny and warm
day to remember a 
boxer and his crown.
Everyone turned out to
say goodbye to their
friend and famous 
neighbour.
All of them praising 
their hero and their
'God-given' saviour.

The small town of 
Louisville, in the 
friendly state of 
Kentucky.
All parading along
the streets - no one's
in a hurry.
They're all here to pay
their tributes to a 
man of honour and
vitality.
Also a campaigner for
racism, the brilliant
Muhammad Ali.

The church is full of
people - all united in
their grief.
Then a teary-eyed 
onlooker - pulled out
a silk white handkerchief.
The mourners moan a
passing of a man who
was their KING.
And sometimes on
occasions we would 
hear him start to sing.

Now he starts a new 
journey, a new chapter,
to be forgiven.
Now in Club Paradise - 
also known as Heaven.
He really moved so well,
like a butterfly, oh, so
sweet.
He would sting like a
possessed bee - but very 
nimble on his feet.

God Bless Muhammad Ali,
as he is now laid to rest.
But his passing brings
America together, now
they feel a brand new
zest.
May God bless the folk 
of Louisville, of good
old Kentucky state.
The angels now all sing
together - and, boy, they
sure sound great.

The good lord has now
taken Muhammad - to
his bosom in the sky.
But many mourners do
bow their heads - silently
they all do cry.
The greatest boxer who
stung like a bee - is now
at peace and rest.
But he sure floated like
a butterfly - and always
moved with zest.   

The love of the lord is
with you now - as he
blesses Muhammad Ali.
And they're even sitting
down in heaven - having
afternoon tea!
Muhammad smiles at God,
as they both sit down for 
tea.
God made Muhammad Ali -
who's punches stung like
a bee!!!!
