The Race

The course chased forth stretched out

Ahead in racing challenge as the driver

Gripped the controls, at last head of the

Whole field speeding onwards fast

To the grand prix, victory’s shield

And triumphal glee.

One final curve a waving flag and then

The champagne moment most deserved

His big accolade, and lemonade’s sweet flow

All in the soapbox derby afterglow.

Wonderful description and racy, I may add. Great work, Frank.

You mts have been watching a race on TV when you thought of this.

hi frank,


a nifty poem. im not a big fan of car racing, the only race i like is the daytona 500 in central northern florida in the usa. this poem makes me want to watch the daytona 500 again. this year the race was shortened by several laps because if weather. that really pissed me off.

It takes me back to yesteryear, Frank, to the days of the pinewood derby. I suppose kids these days don't even know what that is with video games and whatnot.
