Best Poem of Stanley Cooper

Jackie Robinson…an American Hero

He never asked to be a hero
For him, playing ball would be just fine
Potentially his chance was less than zero
To overcome that black-white racist line

Unlike Duke, Dimag and Mickey
Jackie entered through back doors
The stage was set by Mr. Rickey
For Robinson to fight that Civil War

So, they should have hung their heads in shame
For what was then America's propriety

Read the full of Jackie Robinson…an American Hero

At corruption of our English language

In speaking in this kind of way
I seem to find it most confounding
Why double negatives remain abounding
