HOPETOWN AND SOCHI

HOPETOWN AND SOCHI

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!

SOCHI AND HOPETOWN

SOCHI AND HOPETOWN

Vicarious and satisfying

Things we choose to view…

People want to see a show

That makes them feel brand new.

Something to celebrate life

Beyond our personal means…

Physical and beautiful,

Fulfilling of great dreams.

The Olympics, sure reality,

Although they are worlds away…

Making dreams more possible

If only for today.
