Dear SpeedwayPlus,

It is ten years ago this month (September, 2001) that I stopped playing at being a speedway rider and my world appeared to change irrevocably. Er, here's another 'poem'...

David Walsh.

 

The Badly Marked Programme

Many of us appreciate
A neat and tidy programme
But the ideal seems barely possible
These days
Through the shaking of hands
And failure of pens
Names resemble scars
Upon the page

And our home team, as we'd hoped it would be
Is not what we've now come to see
Spoiled by an unwelcome guest
Who appeared for the money
Who blew his first race
Bad form marked for posterity
In cheap and nasty ink

So, the heat numbers have risen
Now past four
And something else has gone wrong here
What's the score again?
Because what these figures say doesn�t add up at all

Could there really have been so many points lost?
"Well, I was simply watching the action
And the score is of no interest"
We'll just stick with 11-9 to them, then
Shall we?
And to hell with the consequences!
