A journey through the last fortnight
It's Outrageous expense in times of austerity,
but London is open: no ticket unsold.
Yearning for glory over world competition - there
are Medals - first silver, then bronzes, then gold!
People ecstatically chant: "Team GB"
as Invincible athletes crown years of tough training.
The Closing ceremony celebrates all
Smiles spread across nations: supreme joy is reigning.
