In the shadow of a Giant


A tribute to Baby Jake Matlala

 

As the world stands in mourns

And as his life’s walk adjourns

After the setting of his sun

We bow our heads in awe

And say ‘goodbye’ with deep heart sore

 

But during this desperation

We focused on all his stations

That grabbed the eyes of all the nations

 

And we missed the sad ‘goodbye’

Of another boxer guy

The weighty champion of the fly

 

It seems he was a shadow

It seems Baby Jake was a skim

Of the greater scheme

 

He followed right behind him,

But no-one saw him

He walked right beside him

But no-one noticed him

He followed ever so quietly

Therefore no-one heard him

 

The great respect that he’s worthy of

Comes from those that’s closer off

As we say ‘goodbye’ to Baby Jake

He went in the shadow of a heavy weight
