I loved watching the Olympics these past couple of weeks. The competition between countries via their athletes is a testament to sportsmanship and fair play (badminton notwithstanding). It’s impossible not to be affected by the sheer joy of victory on the face of the athletes when they win for themselves and for country. If only we could resolve all our disputes this way!
The Olympics are a roll of the dice
With the athletes paying the price,
But I hope that we’ve learned
When the games are adjourned
That we still have to try and play nice.
