The Olympic Games

How lucky I, to have the time
To watch Olympics all the day.
I have not written one small rhyme
For fear I’ll miss some of the play.

To watch Olympics all the day
Means I don’t get my housework done
For fear I’ll miss some of the play.
In London town its rain or sun.

I don’t get my housework done
My favorite has lost the race.
In London town its rain or sun.
There’s disappointment on his face.

My favorite has lost the race
I haven’t written one small rhyme.
There’s disappointment on his face.
How lucky I, to have the time.
