2 Flint Rossetti, Christina. “Flint.”

3 Malaysia, Jacinta. “The Olympic Runner.”
THE OLYMPIC RUNNER (hyperbole) The sun beat down so hard it burnt his back, His feet ate the dust as he ran the endless track, The wind gave him wings and the miles flew by, He was gunning for gold, for victory he’d die. Critics had a field day when he entered the arena, They could have knocked him down with a feather, “Sideways you can’t see him through a 50-cent coin, Bones on a cold carcass make up his manly loin.” “His feet so long he will surely fall flat on his face, Legs stretch down like two bamboo poles in place, From the land of famine he gets not his daily bread, If he wins, we’ll eat our hats,” in mockery they said. As he touched the finish line, the crowd went wild, Cheers heard across the land by every man and child, His heartbeats so erratic they were beating out of time If he could take a shot at his critics it’d be no crime. Sweat streamed down, pooled like rivulets on the floor, A warrior back from the battlefield, battered and sore, Standing tall as a Brobdingnagian, the anthem sung The joy so sweet, he could taste it on his tongue. He was so tired he felt he could sleep for a year The cynics struck dumb, had no cause to jeer, ‘A man in a million’ was the headlines that day “Not a mere man but a giant in spirit ,” they say. Work Cited Malaysia, Jacinta. “The Olympic Runner.” The Olympic Runner (hyperbole), a poem by Jacinta Ramayah Malaysia Data Found: Poem With Hyperbole
