Starting the morning with rambunctious tots, Our energy was fully spent, But soon thereafter we packed up and left And towards the station we went.
We pulled up to the market All ablaze with western names, But even through all of our preparations, Said train never came.
With dejected faces we headed back, But were soon met with the best When we pulled up and saw the sight of the Beijing Olympic Bird’s Nest!
With kung fu students and Buddhist monks galore, with acrobats in the air, We smiled with glee, snapped our pics, and couldn’t help but stare.
So to end the day we stopped for a bite, an appetizing Chinese feast, And leaving there with bellies full, And if I only say the least,
While it may have been an impromptu day, It turned out quite okay.
