Olympic Pole Vault Sonnet by Isaac Anderson Ednam Primary

With the crazy hype and the training to get strong,

You’d think it’d be impossible to go wrong,

With the pole vault you leap and you go high,

Flying up so you touch birds in the sky.
 

Pole vaulting may be harder than you think,

Cause you could hit the devil’s pole in a blink,

So there I go limbering up ready,

I pray and pray the pole will stay steady.
 

Now foreign athletes fight prevailing winds,

And the horror as my turn begins,

I sprint with the pole push it off and jump,

Somehow I get over without a bump.
 

Crash! Bang! I hurl into the mat,

Beaming victoriously lying flat.
