Countdown To The London Olympics,2012 - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

In four years, once,
World's brethren come
To display skills
In games and sports.

A massive meet;
Expensive too,
To pick the best
From world around.

Most nations join
With hope and pride,
Sending their teams
To do their best.

Nation's flags fly;
Strange lights display;
Anthems are sung
Making all proud.

And people wait
Most eagerly,
To set their eyes
Upon the feast.

But partakers
Get trained to chase
Medallions of
Gold, silver, bronze.

‘High Tech' rules roost;
Seconds decide;
Is umpire.

A time to fight;
Glory at stake;
Hearts too may break
When wins denied!

Infuses hearts;
Much sweat and heat,
Strength, speed, decide.

Tumble records;
Spirits are high;
Rivalry plays;
Drugs, sex change course!

The best will win;
Mind, soul matters;
Perfection speaks
From start to end.

Some surprises
May well arise;
High hopes could be
Dashed to the ground.

The food is great;
Logistics neat;
Faultless, beefed up.

And many go
As spectators
To watch the fun,
Merely enjoy!

The world awaits
The Olympics
To start off soon,

The world wishes
All, ‘All the Best! '
‘Fair Olympics,
And joyful end! '
