Nearly Forgot!

I forgot to add in the poem I wrote for the Olympics:

The Olympic Poem

I’m thinking about something Olympic
But unfortunately I have no yardstick
And in trying to remain artistic
I’m going to try and write a poem

There’s 205 countries in the Olympics
And 000’s of spectators to transfix
Throw in TV and the world into the mix
And You have a whole mess of interest

Despite the security situation
And G4S fooling the nation
At the end it’s about an ovation
For all those taking part

I’m one of 70 thousand
Who volunteered to give a hand
So that all venues are manned
And our visitors are treated well

It started over 2 years ago
And little was I to know
That that time would go so slow
But it actually went quick

Having to attend days training
Being told about just everything
If only I knew just something
About how everythings going to work!

Anyway back to things Olympic
To people who run, jump, throw & kick
Wishing them good luck & good nick
To win the medal they strive

(and added by my mate Neil):

Now that you’ve been there and done it.                                                    In your sleep, GB Anthem , you’ll hum it .                                                  Now retired, you’re better off doing summit,                                                There’s a medal there for you too, Clive
