A rhyming love poem to Xi Jinping and/or the Chinese Communist Party to thank them for hosting the Olympic Games.

In this Fanstory contest , I had to write a rhyming love poem to Xi Jinping and/or the Chinese Communist Party to thank them for hosting the Olympic Games.

Obviously, this is an absurd idea and so the only way for me to do this was to write in the style of William McGonagall

In the year 2022 the Olympics of the Winter took place in Beijing,

Thanks to the wonderful person Xi Jinping

The President of the People’s Republic of China

Than which no country is finer

Organised the greatest of Games

And the most beautiful and incandescent of flames

Thanks to Xi

And the Chinese Communist Party

Skiers, skaters, lugers, and bob sleighers, according to the sages,

Showed off their skills on the greatest of stages

Thanks to Xi

Who will always rank XI out of X with me

These were the best Olympics of all time

The viewing figures were sublime

Thank you to the people of China

Than which no people are finer

For putting on the greatest show

Amongst the most beautiful ice and purest snow
