I never was at Hopetown

With Olympics broadcasts around…

So I cannot say

How well they’d play,

With the resident staff on the grounds.

For most of the handicapped men,

“Professional wrestling” was then…

The viewing of choice

Giving raucous voice,

With abundant enthusiasm.

Movies like TOP GUN,

Were enjoyed as “rule of thumb”…

Taking away

Limits of the day,

Allowing vicarious fun.

Limits are our reality,

Accepting yet dreaming are key…

In another world

Talent is unfurled,

We join them in sorrow and glee!
