    A renaissance man and wordman of impeccable wit. This is how a review of your work would read if it were written by me. I enjoyed all of your works. Thanks for your poetry Mr. Cooper

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
Brought prejudice to every game

The Brooklyn Bums, at long last, found salvation
When Robinson's talents were revealed
With the awesome ...

Read the full of Jackie Robinson…an American Hero
