All Time Great

Lifting an entire city

his swing a work of art

Hammerin’ Hank

baseball’s beating heart

Home run record broken

before steroids playing it clean

an achievement to cheer

amazing to be seen

Suffering racial injustice

death threats and more

standing tall

for those to come and those before

Civil rights leader

change hoped for and endless work done

a man of peace and power

legendary one

On the field a hero of sports

off the field a hero of hearts

gone now in body

but the spirit never departs
