Ode To the Winter Olympics

As I watch the games I must get a grip
Because I realize my knowledge is almost zip.

For example I was absolutely completely awe struck
When I learned that a double axel was not part of a truck.

And a Michelle Kwan for all I knew
Was another strain of the Asian flu.

Ski jumping looks like fun for those with the touch
But after 30 minutes I can take just so much.

And the hockey games would be a real delight
If they threw away the puck and just let ’em fight.

I don’t understand curling with the broom and stone;
And I have a feeling that I’m not alone.

Really,I don’t want the games in anyway diminished
Just give me a call when they’re finally finished.

Speak Your Mind
