Olympic tale!

SIR - Sidmouth Olympics 2012

When they make slouching in the chair

An Olympic sport, I’ll be there.

When they give out a cup,

For refusing to get up, I’ll win it every year.

You may also want to watch:

When they hand out the gold

For sitting by the fire, I’ll leave the others in the cold.

And when I’m asked to sign my name

In Sidmouth’s hall of fame (The Knowle),

I won’t go.

How beautiful it is to do nothing,

And then to rest afterward!
