Rio Olympics,

Is so full of statistics.

Surrealistic.

There, a legitimacy of the Human Spirit...
There, a legitimacy of the Human Spirit...


Legitimacy,

There, the true human spirit.

Its participants.

Hope for the future,
Hope for the future,


Hope for the future,

Where all to compete, embrace.

Our best Human Race.

Our best human race...
Our best human race...

      This very much says it all. The true human spirit is what is embraced in this competition.

      Well, it's certainly been a topic of conversation - and of TV watching for the last couple of weeks. Enjoyed your poems.
