Majak Daw - Poem by Francis Duggan

The first Sudanese player to play top class Australian Rules Football
A sturdy handsome dark skinned fellow athletic and tall
In opposing defenders one to find a flaw
The pride of the North Melbourne Kangaroos fans the amazing Majak Daw
When Majak plays well North Melbourne are hard to beat
One who is always smiling in victory or defeat
Africa's first A F L player is quite a man
A credit to his people and his Country of origin of Sudan
Quite a likeable fellow and hard to knock off of his feet
Against Australia's best A F L players with success he compete
The North Melbourne fans love him as their favorite player
The Majak Daw kind of A F L football are rare
The first African A F L player is an amazing man
And one who is loved by every North Melbourne fan.
