The King # The Greatest.

Muhammad Ali
Loved ‘Bad’ Sonny Liston
Red Crazy Horse
And bold Solzhenitsyn
It’s forty three years
Since we said goodbye
Elvis the King
You’ll just never die
My own Annie Oakley
Played The Boys of Bluehill
With Sioux and Comanche
And Buffalo Bill
Some things in our view
Look not as they are
It’s not that they’re small
They’re just very far
It’s toll greets the dawn
As cradles still rock
Big Ben is a bell
Not a big clock
This wicked pandemic
Someday we shall tame
There’s always a rainbow
After the rain
On docking in Dublin
Lone Ranger and Tonto
With Silver in tow
They all hit for Monto.

I’ll be back…Sláinte!
