    The Final lap: Mia and Mike

    Mia’s river of pain ceased its frost
    Her broken heart finally came to an end
    Hope never cast away and became lost
    The fastest man in the world became her friend

    Michael’s veins of descent from Hercules’s cell
    Mia’s lineage of Atlanta’s that’s why she runs so well
    Greens eyes of Mia one morning caught his sight
    Of an Athletes run everyone swore was flight

    So the courtship commenced
    Mia got over her sweet love of Spence
    Mike proved his love with a green mark
    Evidence of his love from the first look or start

    Of a race he won in victory
    Was Mia the cause, well lets see

    Isis weaved Mia some magical shoes
    All who wore them could never loose
    By mistake Mike wore them in a 100 meter race
    And ran all other men in a distant disgrace

    Michael and Mia

    Who could think of a perfect match
    Did Cupid use a net for this catch
    In the temples of Hercules they wed
    Atlanta, the best woman for Mia,
    Tears of many she shed

    Their finally lap
    Was a walk down the Altar
    Silver and Gold rings they wrap
    These are the two worlds brightest stars

    This is the last poem written in “love and the Olympiads”, a short play
