    Sorry it was a work in progress just typing on my phone.

    How about this?

    Poor Sotnikova who skated well until she stumbled,
    Then giggled like a girl when she bumbled,
    Then did a 16 second crossover for all to see,
    She could only win with the I$U's shady guarantee.
    "But it's over, we won!" a crazy Russian fan exclaimed.
    "No -- it was rigged" the rest of the world resoundingly proclaimed.
    And as for what her legacy will always be?
    All hail Adelina, The Phoney Queen Of Sochi!

    Yuna Kim’s a slice of heav’na,
    So is ‘Lina Dmitriyevna.

    A freaking poem about the judging scandal? Are you serious or are you just trying to entertain everyone now?

    I marvel every day that this thread is still alive, but goodness, a poem... May I suggest a poem about the beauty of Yuna's skating instead? This one, I must say, is rather counter-productive.

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing a song of Yuna Kim?
    Sadly we know that we will never see
    The likes of her again!

    When the beating of our hearts
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    Wishing her all the future’s best
    When tomorrow comes!

    You marvel that this thread can still be alive?
    But only in response do your insecurities thrive.
    Go now and remember Sotnikova's steps were three
    And no more deserved was The Phoney Queen Of Sochi!

    Sandpiper thinks Yuna should have won. Unlike you Sandpiper can discuss the matter without totally disregarding other people's thoughts in a dismissive manor. It's how discussion boards are intended to work.

    But if you're against my levity,
    Please clarify with all due brevity,
    Why you think it's ok to post ridiculous things,
    Then shout a person down with the truth they bring.

    Sotnikova's stumble was a bumble, was it not?
    But she still scored 149 -- as if by design.
    But anonymous judging means the cheats won't get caught.
    Which is fine with the ISU. They even tell the fans "hey screw you!"

    What's the best way to win an ISU competition?
    Just sign the dotted line with monetary conviction.
    Trade favors and bribes and they will up your score.
    You don't even have to skate the best anymore!
    No need for 4-steps if you can't do more than level 3,
    They'll give you credit anyway just like The Phoney Queen!

    I don't think you'll be satisfied until every ISU event has a scene like this play out.

    One day soon the ISU will be so poor,
    They won't be able to afford competitions anymore.

    Says a person who is writing in verse. I know this was (kinda) in style for letters among upperclass people in the eighteenth century, but we're a few hundred years too late and on an internet message board.

    Seriously, are you trying to help Yuna's case, or just trolling to make people hate Yuna?

    Maybe you don't know the meaning of the word levity?

    If you read Shakespeare then you know the fool's the thing
    Listen to the truth and wisdom through which he sings.
