NFL linebacker and Renaissance man Dhani Jones hosts the Travel Channel show, Dhani Tackles the Globe.

Like any good Renaissance man, he’s writing poems inspired by the travel experiences featured on each show.

The topic of tonight’s journey: New Zealand.




Greater Than ...

It is us…
It is we…
It is they…
It is he…
It is she…
It is them…
It is him…
It is tough…
It is kind…
It is smooth…
It is rough…
It is food…
It is cool…
It is sweet like green lip muscles…
It is good like sailing…
It is absurd as the word…
It is as just as it must…
It is baby like maybe…
It is fuss no muss…
It is helli fishing…
It is a cold cold beer…
It is a hot hot treat…
It is something to eat…
It is Auckland…
It is the bay of islands…
It is everywhere…
It is here…
It is there…
It is getting your life back…
It is 9 days…
It is TNZ…
It is me…

And, it is you, if you have no clue, you better look around… It’s not that hard to be found…

Some say it’s better than sex and far more important then any text…

Take my word for it for I say it’s true…

It is water…
