Default Olympic Micropoems Comp

The Poet Society of Social Media & SMS (I had to look up "SMS" to learn that it stands for "short message service") is sponsoring a micropoetry competition with a Kindle as the prize. They're looking for poems of 160 characters or less on the subject of this year's London Olympics. Well, strictly speaking, this year's Games are the occasion for the contest, but the rules say simply that entries "must be about the Olympics in some way." No entry fee, but PSSMS registration is required. Complete rules at this link:

The trouble is that whenever you talk about the Olympics it's like being in church, worthy and boring. Running and jumping is really tedious and two weeks will be more than enough, but I doubt a little poem on those lines will scoop the money.
