    Poetry Corner: Jackie Robinson

    The good die young the truth all these police murders on video that’s the proof,

    I just hope we’re all strong and brave enough to wear 42.

    Just another ball player at the plate taking a swing,

    I only want my fair chance on the biggest stage of this game.

    A man with fight looking to take opportunity,

    An activist and revolutionary changing the world of sports he had no clue.

    Not the first Black sports figure or world champion Jackie Robinson,

    But deserves more than all his fame held by his name.
