Reality TV: Global Edition

The world will be watching the Olympics

Quite long ago in ancient Greece,
“The Games” began to portend peace
as nations of the world converged
to play in unity.

They’re now in all-dressed-up Beijing.
“The Games” commence as all five rings
like continents combine to say…
“Though many, we are one.”

We’ll watch them run, swim, jump and vault
and play team sports like basketball
as Earth’s brown, yellow, black and white
blur into Heaven’s hue.

For two weeks time all eyes are on
the athletes to see who won.
“The Games” are what most people call
Reality TV.

Recalling Munich’s grave nightmare,
let’s pray that Beijing’s free from terror.
May He who governs globally
hold China in His hands.
