Answering The Rings

Doesn’t matter what they’re selling,
Excellence is plain compelling.
That’s how come my TV’s on
Until the whole darned day is gone
Whenever an Olympiad
Is happening. I wish we had
A way of knowing when that was!
I’d like a little warning ’cause
I’ve things to do that don’t get done
When athletes swim and ride and run
And volley balls on sand and wood.
I’d just ignore it if I could
But that’s a goal too fast, too high,
Too strong for watchers such as I,
So to my chores I bid adieu!
There’s excellence for me to view.
