No One Can Outrun Bolt

by Benjamin Jasinski-Eshun (age 14)

Bolt beaten! Defeated!
By this...Yohan Blake!
Twice! That isn’t nice.

But wait!
Bolt strikes back
and wins back his glory.
His defeats in the trials were
only temporary.

His performance varies,
not in the best of shape
at that time.
But Bolt knew he would be fine.
This was just a warm up for him
and his rival/friend.
He was well aware
he'd be running again.

He knew he would win
and he did.
Outrunning all other men.
For in the trials,
there was only a little fault with Usain Bolt.
