WALKABOUTSVERSE 143 OF 230

Poem 143 of 230:  OLYMPICS OR GLOBALISATION?

Largely, I’d say, an Olympic Games is
    One nation’s way v. other nations,
During fairly-fought sport competitions -
    “Citius, altius, fortius.”

So, if all states become multicultural
    Or humans become culturally one
(Through migration and globalisation),
    Holding Olympics would become null.
