Superlative Inflation

As every Team GB Olympic medal winner
tells of how 'unbelievable' 'astonishing',
'amazing', and how incredible their victory is
on my main source of news, BBC radio,
I refuse to let the Olympic Games stay
on my television. I find myself agreeing
with them. As the crowds' roar reaches
into the quiet of my home and the breathless
athletes speak I say 'I don't believe it either'.
