Seeing that this Friday is the start of the Olympics here in Britain, I thought that this might be apt.
I associate sports day with the cringing agonies of knowing that I will fail ...
...and there's nothing I can do about it..
....but watch the winners win!
However I have enjoyed the run up to the games ...and if anyone has a ticket for any of the sports...have fun and don't scream so loud that you lose you voice...the potter will be doing that for you!
do not shiver
in unsightly shorts and shirts.
do they sit
dejectedly waiting for the next race.
would rear it's ugly head,
and musclebound boys
romp off with the medals
on the beach,
polo in the sea.
of waves on surf boards
and loud shouts of laughter.
this cannot be
sports day - can it?
Once again the wonderful dVerse is hosting "Open link night" week 54 so I'm hurrying along to make sure that I'm in my seat for the game to begin...yes I have a ticket!!
