sic transit gloria mundi

heaven is wide still
and bright over the smoothly curved arena.
but the games have moved on
and so has the spirit.

a single tear is pending
about to fall out of the fragile sky
having seen too much

is this the track of Lasse Virén,
of Walerij Borsow and Heide Rosendahl?
or is it to witness the corruptness
of what used to be the olympics.
