It’s cliched to be cynical when watching the Olympic ceremony

I was prepared to hate the Olympic opening ceremony, I mean if there is one thing we Brits are bound to get a gold in its self-deprecation.

But something strange happened, read on….

Clenching a Carling and the iPad
Twitter open but my mind closed,
There came a Damascus moment
Who on earth would have known ?
My rehearsed bile just stalls
And like others I’ll admit,
All cynicism has gone AWOL
I’m really proud to be a Brit !
I’m glued to the ceremony
Even though of sport I’m not fond,
I’m loving every minute of it
Especially the Queen and Bond.
But I have one tiny complaint
That might be echoed by a few,
Why on earth was there
No appearance by Doctor Who?
