The Olympic Games in Rio

Hundred of native BR  families lived in this favela,

forcibly evicted in favour of accommodation for the few

marvelling briefly at athletic prowess at the Games.

  1. There is a huge gap
    between what is
    And what should not be
    It has taken life to a whole new
    Definition
    Which has us wondering why
    Unfortunately the answer
    Lies where the hand meets
    The pocket and someone
    Always getting something
    That the rest don’t have
    Life is very strange
    And we are left
    With this mystery
    That is the untold
    Secret of life

  2. Yes, as Cornelis says, two worlds – one pandering to money, national pride and short term newsworthiness and given every importance – and the other based on poor, powerless, local people and given no thought whatsoever. I am not in any case a fan of televised sport, but I do wonder if countries such as Brazil, with their vast disparities between the haves and have nots, should host these international media spectacles; maybe they belong – if they belong anywhere at all – more in the wealthier world.

    • Yes, I wonder too, I have rather lost interest in all sports, everything is heavily weighted on the money side and therefore folk will do anything …doping…to get the required result. Sad state of affairs.

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
