Olympics 2012 - Poem by Syed Anwar Yarkhan Jilani

Fireworks explode over the Olympic stadium
And gloriously place Britain on a high podium.
A carnival atmosphere created by Spice Girls,
Pet Shop Boys to a Freddie Mercury hologram
Greets the packed stadium to applause swirls
Feast eyes and ears 'Blame It On Rio' 2016.

The newest Bond girl is Queen Elizabeth.
First acting role to eighty six year Macbeth
Turning to say 'Good Evening Mr Bond',
Upheld Games motto and Daniel Craig.
{Line was immaculately and deliciously delivered.
The Queen looked from the corner of her eyes,
A mischievous smile broke before walking off
To an awe and a roar that ripped the clouds.}

Usain Bolt dances to turn world's fastest man
Wins and wins with Jamaican relay team fans
He is everywhere since from kitties to Obama
Finger on his lips was classic moment of drama.

Michael Phelps becomes a fish with two feet
Greatest Olympian ever to honour this seat
Tally twenty two medals with eighteen gold
The titan of pool lost as sets himself on hold.

Mr Molympics was Britain's thunderous glee
Bags five and ten thousand meters sans a plea
Mo Farah, Mogadishu born neglected athlete
Break records to enter British premier league.

'Call Me Maybe' lip dub of Olympic clown
Grabbing four gold in first entry right down
Missy Franklin seventeen year up steel girl
Be a tiara and a swimming American pearl.

Barack Obama invited her, Opera cried tears
Her name became an anagram of 'USA Gold'
Gabby Douglas 'Flying Squirrel' the air fears
All fall in love with a gymnast petite and bold.

Ye Shiwen, sixteen, a teen mutant from China,
OMG! Sent shock waves in the pool line cords,
Laps faster than male greats Phelps and Lochte
Won two gold and smashes all female records.

Doping toll at the Games took its instant outing
Belarusian stripped Shot Put gold after winning
Nadzeya Ostapchuk's elimination is unfortunate
Whatever be outcome of the case inappropriate.

Cheers and celebrations in Trinidad went wild
Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar was mild.
National holiday for one gold and three bronze
For country of one million it is a great bonanza.

We delivered successful games says Cameron.
Also the host's best show ever of all times on
Twenty nine gold and placed at position three
British Olympic legacy was at peril and not free.
