I thought that since the Olympics are in full swing now it might be a good time to post this poem!
The beloved Greek Olympics,
are a wonder to behold!
And since I’m the perfect athlete
I’ll leave my rivals in the cold.
The crowds will be left speechless
by the feats I shall achieve
and at the end they’ll adorn my head
with a crown of olive leaves.
Since I’m the fastest athlete
from Olympia to Athens,
my breakneck pace at each foot race
is sure to please the masses.
With the long jump I’m astounding,
my leaps can’t be outdone,
each wrestling match an easy task
since I’ve superior skill and brawn.
I’ll firmly grasp the javelin
and throw with all might,
the throngs will cheer and watch that spear
sail swiftly out of sight.
Then I’ll hurl a hefty discus
to the pleasure of the crowds.
and soon that stone projectile
will be lost beyond the clouds.
But I’ve just heard a rumor
that may change my attitude.
It has come to my attention
that they’re competing in the nude!
I know it may seem natural,
and I’m all for self-expression,
but I think I’ll linger amongst the crowd
and simply sell concessions.
