The Beijing Olympics

Saturday 7 June 2008, by Tsoltim N. Shakabpa

When in the Beijing Olympics
Win for free speech
Run for human rights
Throw a javelin to kill hatred
Jump to overcome ignorance
Bicycle to treadle over tyranny
Pole vault to reach for freedom
Throw a shot put to knock out communism
Swim to save those imprisoned and tortured
And race as hard as you can in praise of God

P.S.

Tsoltim N. Shakabpa’s 6th book of poems, DEAD PEOPLE TALKING, is due to be published soon by Paljor Publications in New Delhi.
