Great to see so many unknown sports people getting their 15 minutes of fame during the 2014 Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow.  Meanwhile in a galaxy far, far away, on the west coast of Scotland a small place known as Largs held its own Commonwealth Games for the sport of fencing but after all the excitement had died down.  They waited until November.  (Interesting language in sports commentary.)


Commonwealth 2014


a smorgasbord of culture

ice-cream on the beach

an audience of seagulls

there’s medals within reach


Largs mid November

isn’t Glasgow in July

and never on my list of things

to do before I die


they say it had a Woolworth’s

but now’s no time to tarry

from end to end like lightning

and don’t forget to parry
