Ode to the 2022 Winter Olympics

by Julian Worker

The CCP and Me Contest Winner 
In the year 2022 the Olympics of the Winter took place in Beijing,
Thanks to that wonderful person Xi Jinping

The President of the People's Republic of China
Than which no country is finer
Organised the greatest of Games
And the most beautiful and incandescent of flames

Thanks to Xi
And the Chinese Communist Party
Skiers, skaters, lugers, and bob sleighers, according to the sages,
Showed off their skills on the greatest of stages

Thanks to Xi
Who will always rank XI out of X with me
These were the best Olympics of all time
The viewing figures were sublime

Thank you to the people of China
Than which no people are finer
For putting on the greatest show
Amongst the most beautiful ice and purest snow

The CCP and Me
Contest Winner

This is a poem in the style of William McGonagall, who is regarded as an absurdly bad poet with extravagant descriptions and amazing rhymes. His was the style I first thought of when reading the absurd idea of writing a love poem to the Chinese Communist Party. For a good example of McGonagall's work I would suggest this one, his most famous - or should that be infamous poem.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
