My Olympic Poem

I’ve seen them running around the track,

As they smile and wave at me.

I see them doing different things,

And I wonder what it could be.

They ran around with different names,

This is of course,

The Olympic Games.

I saw them doing different sports,

And trying to be the best,

There were quite a few

Amazing sports,

But what about the rest?

There should be some sports

About sleeping and burping,

And maybe some of drinking and slurping.

If they want the Olympics to be the best,

Then they should include the rest.

Olympic Event

I wish there was an Olympic event

For eating crisps in front of the tele

Or clipping toenails on the settee

I wish Gold Medals were given out

For running through puddles

Or blowing bubbles in a glass of milk

I wish there was an Olympic event

For making breaking wind noises

When you put your hand under your armpit

And flap like a chicken

Or 4 textin ur best m8 on a rolacoasta

Or for claiming the last chocolate in the box

I wish Gold Medals were given out

For missing the bus

Or keeping a straight face when you’re being told off

Or making up the best excuse for why you’re late home

I wish there could be

A long distance event for dunking biscuits in a cup of tea

Or holding your breath through tunnels

Or dodging the cracks on the pavement

Or just getting to school on time

I wish there was an Olympic event

For turning over and going back to sleep

Or for pulling funny faces behind backs

Or for knowing what’s happening in Eastenders

Or reading a book that you can’t put down

There should be an event for getting dirt under your fingernails

Or spoiling your new shoes

And a special award if you can eat an ice lolly

Without the last bit dropping off

I wish life was an Olympic event

And we all got Gold Medals for taking part!!

The 100 Metres Dawdle

The 100 metres dawdle would be a fascinating race

Insisting on athletes with a glazed face

And a faraway air

People who don’t really care about winning

They’d cross the line grinning

About nothing in particular

It would need people who aren’t really athletes at all

Who know how to crawl through life

It wouldn’t be won by a lean, mean machine

That needs a gun to get them to go

This race would need someone who can successfully waste time

An average schoolchild would be fine

At the start line a philosophy student might try

To win the race by asking: ‘Why?’

They’d refuse to take part at all

Then veer off track

You’d need someone with absolutely no attack

Someone who goes slack

If you give them something to do

In fact a poet might do

The 100 metres dawdle would be a fascinating race

Without any pace

Lasting longer than a marathon

Maybe taking years to complete

As dawdling feet

Shuffle towards the line

Without a design for life

The 100 metres dawdle might teach us

That winning at any cost

Is when sport gets lost

Racing headlong for the grave

When we might save

A bit more time

By dawdling….
