Weekly rowing poem from a Rowperfect reader – Kevin Pyne.  Lyrical, ironic, comedic, and definitely worth the read!

Willis

He wasn’t tall enough To be a rower And yet in his ignorance He kept all the rest at bay By just doing what he Was doing much Better then anyone else He came up against When competing always

He would even tell His competitors how To beat him And what line to take And then still go Out an beat them By shear muscle power And skill and of coarse Exacting precise air intake

Moreover he never got Aggressive or made fun Of those he beat But just got on with Enjoying rowing Whilst being kindly Encouraging and polite
To all that he chanced to meet

His style was truly awful And he did everything The wrong way Yet many a rower has Followed him home After actually thinking That this would be “a synch” At that they “would rule the day”

So if you think yourself A rower Don’t ever get left with Egg upon your face By those who are smaller But do not know that According to all the principles Within the art of rowing They cannot win the race
