    Default "The Olympic Gold Medalist"

    “THE OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST”

    (Based on “OZYMANDIAS”
    By Percy Bysshe Shelley [1818])

    I met a traveler from an antique land
    Who said: “Two huge and legless feet of stone shod with bladed skates
    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose insincere smile,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of arrogance,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The conceit that had mocked them and the heart that had fled.
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    ‘I am the OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST, Queen of Queens!:
    Look upon my TRIUMPH, ye Champions, and despair!’

    Nothing beside remains. ‘Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    "THE OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST #2"

    (Based on a poem in a 1970 issue of MAD Magazine)

    You brag about the Olympic Gold
    Residing on your shelf.
    I understand the reason why:
    You're nothing by yourself.
