Victory Poem for Abebe Bikila.

Abebe Bikila
With you
Our dreams
Never broken.
Born in 33
Reborn that 73
The foot soldier
Of forty years
Led Ethiopians to run.
This medal avalanche
Abe the shepherd boy
The kid of Jan Meda
First ran with the sheep
Ran with horses and mules
Too deep at heart
Until autos run over him
And this said he in silence:
We are the Ethiopians
Whose lions made to sleep
Need the ran twice as fast!"
Left EthiopiaThis medal avalanche,
With short steady pace
Unconquered will,
Across boarders of Rome,
Troubling the heart of men
And made our flag to fly
Right above: Dead and gone Mussolini
Then and then,
Abebe Led
Mamo followed
Ethiopia led
Kenya followed
Made us friends among nations
Running for Victory
With that Abe's Legacy.


October 27 1973
The Day Abebe Bikila flowered
