the four year cycle, that old refrain
     Go Oz! ... grab gold again’
the media said ‘fifteen a piece’
we sat and watched in disbelief

we did our best, the best we could
though this was not well understood
for best is not quite good enough
unless it produces the golden stuff

to ashes went our dreams and hopes
lost on bikes and rowing boats
Brits are bathed in glory now
but not for Oz a mortal blow -

we’ll not fade in silver light
we’ll beat them Poms next time we fight

  1. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. See the link below for more info.
