you’ve triple bounced
all the world trounced
the smallest margin you did add
but that’s enough, spectator’s glad
and once not enough
in the comp you’re tough
but ding-dong twice
now up your price.
LIKE HIGH JUMP & POLE VAULT
By measured distance sees the records grow
in high jump, pole vault, up, up, up they go
the bar is set the athlete concentrates
officials & the pin-drop crowds then waits
A record’s up for grabs, all know it’s tight
now is the time the athlete channels might
if they succeed that will have been a sight
and Yes! Onto the record list the height.
While over hence a horizontal star
who fouls, runs through, jumps badly, and how far?
They’ve no set aim except to do their best
but what transpires, each is a measure test.
No centimetre nudge to record lengths
the long jump record has some massive dents
But no! no more, when Teddy takes his bow
His record up 1 unit 3 times now.
