A limerick a week #107

The Blue Peter approach to ALAW

I read recently that this year’s Formula One Grand Prix may be one of the last to be held at Ferrari’s ‘home track’ of Monza and, as I was struggling for this week’s ALAW, it put me in mind of a limerick that I wrote a few years ago.

Red Bull gives you wings! (If only! Ralf Schumacher’s spectacular crash in 2002 was with the Williams F1 team. He never actually drove for Red Bull).

I’d been inspired by a friend that had just been to Monza and had posted a few photos of the F1 race on his Facebook page (none as remarkable as the one above, sadly). This is what resulted:

I’ll drive down to Monza and go see
Some Formula One virtuosi,
And then, just perhaps,
I’ll shoot off some snaps
And become ‘one’ with all the Tifosi!

Hopefully, normal service will be resumed next week with a fresh-out-of-the-oven limerick instead of a ‘Blue Peter’ one (aka “Here’s one I made earlier…”)
