Melbourne 2013 (a hexameter)
racetrack was heard / a rush and a roll and a roaring;
the ringing, like sirens/ were caught in the wind of a seashell.
speeds most ferocious / as they spanned o’er the fringe of a pulse beat,
inside of a whirlwind / like instruments made for alarming.
fanatics were rooting / and drivers all focussed on winning;
waver from ‘centre’ / as determined as wild bulls stampeding,
the chariot drivers / who mastered their one-pointed journeys.
-‘Space’ : in
a time-span of minutes, - to attain the much coveted trophy.
set as ideal – and vanquishing all the opponents.
