Speedway Commentary Poem 1: Lines composed on the occasion of the inaugural Monster Energy Speedway World Cup Final at the National Speedway Stadium

Pats his engines to say thank you

That was breathtaking, breathtaking

 

Criticism in the social media

I’ve got 50p in my pocket

 

With the steel shoe off his foot

He will delight the huge crowd

 

Gate 4 is a long way

Harsh realities of speedway

 

What do you expect to see?

We’re talking about the referee

 

The corporate hospitality was busy

To be remembered in 10 years time

 

He was thinking of making a statement,

But he didn’t

 

Put his life in Chris’ hands

Nervous times

 

A tribute the World Cup format

My five-year plan three years ago

 

Did remarkably well to keep his feet up

Absolutely fantastic

 

A little bit angry now

On the edge of the grip

 

Making his diary very busy

I’ve alluded to it already

 

Dare to dream

He has fond memories

 

Clear joy there

You all participated

 

We’re going to be banging on this desk

There have been emails going back and forth

 

Plenty to talk about,

Almost too much in truth

 

That motorbike looks like a rocket

Very clever

 

Step it up

Intriguing moves

 

Handlebar to handlebar

In many places

 

This will live long in the memory,

For a long time for sure

 

There are other refs here tonight

Let’s put them on the back four

 

You’ve only got yourself to blame, Danny

He’s playing the joker

 

Truly extraordinary

He had the right to do that
