Macho Pursuits

Sliding, slipping, gliding, tripping
If ice skating's too exhilarating
Try cake icing, it's quite exciting
Slapping, slopping, frosted topping.

About the Poem

A poem with a strong message about being who you want to be, rather than always having to follow the crowd. Is it really a sports poem? I think so, as you can win an Olympic medal for ice skating, even if not for cake decorating.
