The Olympic flame came past my office this morning. Here are some photos and the obligatory ditty.
|The Torch comes to Harrow on the Hill|
In London's fair city
Where the traffic flow's sh....awful
I first set my eyes on the Olympic flame.
It was carried through Harrow
Through a street which was narrow
Just two days before the start of this year's games.
Alive, alive -o-oh, alive, alive-o-oh
Ran a young man with muscles
|Archtypal British scene; crowd, sponsors, policeman, Union Jack|
There were large crowds to greet it.
I bet many have tweeted
That fine summer morning up here on the hill.
There were dancers and big floats
And police in high-viz coats.
To see the real torch was, for many, a thrill.
