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.
