Usain!
Poems

Usain!

Adonis carved in ebony, wrapped in gold
Manchild, playful, determined, accomplished
Jamaican to the bone
 
The pride of a nation running through history
On two strong legs
As fast as lightning, as cool as the evening breeze
 
From Mount Olympus to the Blue Mountains
And every corner of the world
The wind shall whisper your name, “Usain!”
