English: The City of London skyline as viewed toward the north-west from the top floor viewing platform of London City Hall on the southern side of the Thames. In the foreground: Dixie Queen and Millennium Time at Tower Millennium Pier. This is a 5 segment panoramic image taken by myself with a Canon 5D and 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Born of Zeus the Legend says, Great Olympian

Gather in London they do

Bodies finely honed

Each leap year nations leap for Gold

Despots,democracies, enemies, friends sup together they do

Gold they all crave

Price of gold so high

Cruel mixtures are the brain’s torment

Who shall swallow the bitter pill of defeat

Barcol, sorcerers, magicians promise gold

Gold, Silver, Bronze athletes crave

Barcol, sorcerers, magicians are thick in the air

Temptations so hard to resist

Winning is all and all

Oh Olympians! Oh Mighty Zeus

On their knees your children wail

The birthplace can not compete

Price for survival so high
