BEIJING OLYMPICS 2008 (reposted)

a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

retiring early to watch
colourful opening ceremony
of Beijing Olympics

competitors from most
nations of the world
all in peak condition

flag-bearers from countries
proudly wear their uniforms
march at front of their teams

although politics could play
some part in the proceedings
for the moment all is benign
