Lead For Hero Tillman - Poem by Rudy Diamond

Special~~~ but not perfect
amazing ``` please understand
Had a contract worth $$ millions
Then set off for a
foreign land
People say it's not
about the money
this time
they were right
He walked away
from his pro contract
Nothing anyone could say

Lead for the Tillman
LIES for the TOAD
one more Hot ROUND from the hater's
and one more for the road
Did it all on his own terms
Did something most amazing
twisting through the turns
Tillman you are the hero
and you always will be
words come as empty echos
when we try to open~~~
a fight that will never be closed

    I thought this was a very nice tribute. The best tributes
    are brief, because the greatest men live the most simple lives to describe.
    It simply takes fewer words to define them.Well written.
