Every four years bandwagon pulls up
Nations’ riotous cheers quickly erupt
Time once again to play Olympic Games
Victorious smile; others know shame
Many shall compete but only one wins

Needless distraction or comic relief?
Olympic/Election sine waves are kinda’ synced
Flat on our backs on Roman-Greco mat
IOC and politicians? Elite fat-cats

Masses spectate from wings of the world stage
Conflicting warriors whose exploits amaze
Flag waving wonders whose countries do call
From bread and circuses great Rome did fall

Every four years bandwagon pulls up
Nations’ riotous cheers quickly erupt
Time once again to play Olympic Games
Victorious smile; others know shame
Many shall compete but only one wins

Pomp and splendor comes with huge price tag
Blind adulation revolving round flags
Muscles, sinew, dedication and work
Distracts attention from election jerks

Feet of clay is common fate of mankind
Hero worship is more base than sublime
Athletes and leaders are mere flesh and blood
Blind adoration can transform to disgust

Every four years bandwagon pulls up
Nations’ riotous cheers quickly erupt
Time once again to play Olympic Games
Victorious smile; others know shame
Many competed, hope the best did win
