On Muhammad Ali

The greatest boxer that ever lived many venture to say
But a mere shaadow of the man he used to be today
Time's clock on the life ever ticking away
On the great Muhamad Ali born as Cassius Clay
The  boxer never found to be wanting when put to the test
He beat Liston and Frazier and Foreman when he was at his best
But near to four decades beyond his glorious prime
The great Muhammad Ali is running out of time
Yet some of the great wit with him does remain
And to his last night and day that he will retain
From Louisville in Kentucky one who came up the hard way
A legend in his prime and  a legend today
Famed and known worldwide in every village, city and town
Like 'tis  said one cannot keep a good one down.
