What Only He Can Do (For Usain Bolt)

I just felt inspired to write the following poem in honor of Usain St. Leo Bolt for his amazing success at the London Olympics. Usain, you made me, Jamaica, and the whole world proud!!

What Only He Can Do

The critics jeered,

die-hard fans cheered.

A confident young man

playfully as only he can

drew his crossbow

and like the wind ran.

Respect was earned.

Nuff respect due.

Usain did

what only Usain can do.
