Poem by Cassius Clay

This is the legend of Cassius Clay, The most beautiful fighter in the world today. 
He talks a great deal and brags indeedy, Of a muscular punch that's incredibly speedy. 

The fistic world was dull and weary, with a champ like Liston, things had to be dreary. 
Then someone with colour, someone with dash, brought fight fans a-running with cash. 

Yes, I'm the man this poem is about, I'll be Champ of the World, There isn't a doubt. 

Here I predict Mr Liston's dismemberment, I'll hit him so hard, he'll wonder where October and November went.
