To show their support for Team Honk and our Sport Relief fundraising efforts (which you can read all about here), the Writers at Lovedean have written #TeamSouthampton a poem. I’m very honoured. I *think* we may be the only team so far to have their own poem. If you enjoy it, please share it!
What we could have done….
A naked calendar would be a good idea
But everyone ran away like startled deer
For people in need, we’d like to raise cash
Dance in the streets or sponsor a bath
We should have paraded in the street
Reading our poems and shuffling our feet
We could have jumped on the coach
Shaking buckets like cranks
But you were going to France
And only had francs
I could have shaved my head
But I haven’t got much hair
Or bought a one wheeled bike
And rode it anywhere
I’d jump off the top of the lipstick tower
But the colour just made me look a shower
I could have donned a jester’s hat
Given a vicious Rottweiler a pat
I could have sat in a bath of baked beans
Or slimmed down to a size ten jeans
I would have done a fifty length swim
But all of a sudden the lights went dim
I could have learnt to fly like Eddie the Eagle
Or tried to chase a hundred and one beagles
I should have trained harder to run a race
But I didn’t, I sat and stuffed my face
A sponsored bonk would be an achievement
But I know without fail, it would end in a bereavement
Instead I wrote a poem
Thanks so much to the Writers at Lovedean for their support and their fantastic poem. They donated their time and creativity to write this for us. What will you do?
If you live in the Southampton to Worthing area, we’d love you to get involved. Please read this post to find out more. Watch this space for full details of our plans in the next two days.
