The Champ II

Ali! Ali! Ali!

Shashi  invited postings with a limerick offering. 
Here is on the same theme as my previous posting.

Even at the pre-fight joint weighing-in
He would come swinging and ranting
He gave accurate predictions
Of his opponent’s derelictions
As they fall from grace to the ground reeling

Inspired by Purple Treehouse's  for a limerick (Week3 Sept 21- Oct 02)
Picked by Jingle as an example of a Limerick in Gooseberry Gardens


  1. Stung them good
    Win he could
    With one good swipe
    They would later gripe
    Thanks to that butterfly they would

  2. I love Ali these are wonderful tributes to the man that floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee!
