Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Slog It Blog It, More on the Olympics, Ga Ga Land!
The London 2012 Olympic Village.
have begun arriving in the UK ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Unbelievably
the main park is still a construction site with less than two weeks to go until
the opening ceremony. The latest embarrassment comes after yesterday it
took the American team 4 hours to do a 45 minute journey after the coach driver
got lost. However my sources at Molly Media have
managed to get there and have a sneaky peak at the Olympic village and we can
report that Ga Ga Land is taking shape nicely. There is a pub with free soft
drinks (alcohol is banned) and helpful neon signs reminding you to cheer up and
be happy. Motivational signs inside the pub say ‘Love & Laughter' and 'Live
the Dream'. There is also a place where you can have all the free nosh you can
eat, free massages, free hairdressers, and even free dental treatment if you want.
That’s correct, as after all it is ‘Free Britain’! Victory Park in the Olympic
Village will hold accommodation for the competing athletes and both winners and
those who fail will get gold medals. That’s everyone a winner except us
tax-payers. There are 16,000 identical single
beds which have ‘Excellence, Friendship, Respect’ printed on the duvets! There
is an Olympic Village salon that will offer free beauty treatments night and
day to all. It has recruited a team of manicurists who have been trained to
paint the national flags of every single country on to ten fingernails in under
half an hour. To be fair, Mr Mayor is doing his best to play it all down here
in Ga Ga Land or wherever we call this soulless paradise behind the barricades.
They better not forget to put up a sign saying ‘Real World This Way’ or we
might find some athletes won’t want to leave. No such worries in Blogville and don’t forget
get your entries in for the Blogville Olympics before end of play. For events, hosts, links and emails please scroll down to Sundays post.
