Nonets, by Corbie Sinclair for One Stop Poetry


Iron Men

To get background for the Olympic Storytelling challenge I was reading about an Iron Man competition that has just been held in which a team of injured servicemen had taken part as part of their rehabilitation. Then I remembered it was Form Monday and so switched to the One Stop Poetry site to see what was going on.

It is Nonets today, hosted by Corbie Sinclair. and so here is mine:-

Veterans Triathlon
The ex-marine and paratrooper
run further than a marathon;
long distance bike ride; wild swim –
not a leg between them,
just relentless grit.
Let’s salute these
intrepid
iron
men
