The Lion is the King of the Jungle
You are the Queen of the Ring
Although the roars from Portland Road were the loudest
You have made the whole country of Ireland the proudest
A lightweight only in name
Your talent and brilliance lit up the Olympic Games
You bore the flag and have taken home the Gold medal
Take it easy now
No trouble
No worries
Rest in the knowledge you have brought so much joy to our lives
Each and every one of us

A poem in honor of Kellie Harrington’s Olympic win.
