The exercise:

Write a four line poem about: the Olympian.

Well that didn't take long; I only noticed people talking about the Winter olympics yesterday :) I fly back to Kiev today, so it feels like a used-up day already.

The Olympian
You know how, right? the media name serial killers...
'The Zodiac Killer', 'Jack the Ripper', 'Mr. Whole-skin'?
You just sort of – accidentally – murder a shot-put team,
Suddenly you're in all the papers as 'The Olympian'.

[not based on a true story. Honest.]

Greg - most events are on overnight here, so I'm usually just catching highlights the next day. Hard to get too excited about anything that way.

Hah, accidentally murdering a shot-put team seems like quite the accomplishment. For somebody else. Not you, clearly.
