Monday Morning Quarterbacks

With the Olympics in full swing now, one hot topic is the withdrawal of World Champion American gymnast Simone Biles due to mental health issues. In short, the pressure of performing overwhelmed her. While most of us support and understand this decision, there are always those keyboard warriors who are showing contempt and derision toward her. It’s as if they could accomplish 1/100th what this great athlete has done.


There once was a gymnast named Biles

Who was usually nothing but smiles

But the stress has her down

You can tell by the frown

Her tears are not crocodiles.


Her performances gave us a thrill

She’s certainly not run of the mill

But before you talk smack

Cut her some slack

Or try it yourself if you will.
