    As he's wearing his best club vest.

    Some runners show sensitivity
    and some are macho men.
    Today is Danbert going to prove
    the sword is mightier than the pen.

    There are runners to the right of him
    And runners to the left.
    Will these men be able to tell
    he has a great hole in his vest?

    The 5 minute gun has gone
    and runners form in ranks,
    Danbert is in amongst them.
    Has he time to hide his hankie in his pants?

    The murmer slowly ceases...
    The field edges to the line,
    Danbert breathes deeply
    And the moment is held in time.

    He thinks of runners gone before him
    And of those still yet to come,
    And as the canon fires hears
    "Strength and Honour my Son".

    Danbert charges down the hill
    to the plateau and monument.
    He sees where he stood in '82,
    when another John spoke to a larger mulitude.

    Up hill, down dale and through the stream
    Danbert storms his way around.
    In this field of 400 runners
    Where ever will Danbert be found?

    Is there going to be a happy ending to this saga?

    Magnificent Foinaven absolutely superb. Thank you very much

    on the 2nd lap Danbert grabs a pole and a flag 'off we charge' says Danbert in slippers and carrying a flask.
    no time to run over the stream the pole doubles up as a javeling , now Danbert grabs the pole ready to jump, holding tight as he doesn't want a fright.. jumping with all his might and in mid flight, his shorts come down oh my god what a fright

    As Danbert stode magnificantly out of the stream,
    A white mist decended and covered him over.
    He ran through the paddock avoiding the cows
    Glad that they were more interested in clover.

    As he climbed the hill at the end of the first lap
    The crowds were shouting as he was seen,
    He looked down - and horror of horrors,
    His black vest and shorts had now turned green!!

    His ole fellow is still painted from time gone by, red, white and blue we know his flag is true.

    now coming into land shorts up and charged away, the gloves are off with this young lad swash buckling away.

    no time for a toilet break the sun will have to wait.


    Pengy what are you doing, you're inexcusably, vulgarly lowering the tone on what is one of the most cultured, refined versifications i've ever seen on the forum.

    I apologise on behalf of my friend Foinaven

    No, thank you Foinaven, it's good to see a little culture, refinement and sophistication brought to the forum, even if it was at my expense.

    Incidentally i was there in 82 as well.
