Holly’s Poem:

It’s that time of the week,
You know how we all like to speak,
About watopia and lots of things,
Let’s see what this week brings.

The man that spends his time plotting and planning,
Across lots of routes his tours are spanning,
Relentlessly trying to wear our legs down, 
But on our faces there is no frown.

Day after day, on we go,
Grabbing a wheel for a tow,
Every racer has their own mission,
It is not always about position, 

So without further a do,
Go grab a brew,
Let’s all hail,
the amazing Rich Vale.
