Only gold

5 Aug

My poetic tribute to Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and the rest of our golden Team GB.

Only Gold

It’s mystical lustre,
The feel of it around your neck,
Appreciation,
For your talents,
All you want is gold
Your nations adulation.
A girl from the city of steel,
With steely determination and an iron will,
She strives only for gold.
A man who called this nation his home,
The finish line within his sights to conquer,
For Mo, only gold.
Through raw talent, hard graft,
These alchemists produce a miracle,
Transforming into gold.
For the flying flag,
For the payoff of many years of blood sweat and tears,
For the people willing you to cross the line, to win,
For me and you,
Only gold will do,
Only gold.
