passing the torch

I’ve watched at least some part of the Olympics televised coverage every four (now two) years, ever since I was seven years old. As a kid, I think I was a bit more starry-eyed. Now, I see how biased the coverage is, how ridiculous it is to label someone a loser because they failed to achieve that elusive gold medal, and that the competition isn’t always friendly as it could be. Yet in spite of all that, I still enjoy watching the Olympics, and wrote the following haiku for the Caribbean Kigo Kukai #37, with the theme “The Olympic Games”.

passing the torch
a new generation
takes the medal stand
