This poem for you all, as what I'm about to say is true
No way would this event even be a starter
So Alice to Darwin is a course he surely rates
Each day the lads lining up, for she is awfully cuddly
Day 3 blog was perfect my friend
Do as directed and you he will like
Priscilla attire on Day 7, oh what a sight!
That achilles of yours, you needed help from above
Mate, we are fortunate to have you around
Your name game with Lessa, relax mate, it is now bygones
Everyone loves this beautiful gentle giant
So tough and determined, for your a Sharky twirl.
His first Smiddy adventure into far Northern Territory land!
What a pleasure it was for us all to ride right beside her
Don't mess with his crown, his K.O.M throne
All would agree, a quiet and humble man is Geoff Ney
But so polite and pure, surely born in Bethlehem
A first Smiddy adventure, it was time to turn over a new leaf
In her day, even now, I reckon a good looking sort!
You'll go down in folklore, your name they will sing!
Forever in the Smiddy peloton, you have the mantle of Mr Happy As Can Be
I'm sorry my friend, but well done on having a good go!
Your voice in the peloton, enough energy to thaw a frost
One day he'll get some experience, for now just a rookie
No Alice to Darwin event would ever have taken centre stage
A good man to help organise this epic ride
My apologies for killing you guys, I thought you were felons!
Cares so much for the riders, inside she worries and screams
More people like you in the world, surely needed
Her allergy to the Northern Territory, made her hurl
A song for you, Hey you the rock steady crew, because I'm a songster
Your wooden rowing arse immune from pain, you remain undefeated
I have a feeling, you, everyone here surely likes
Mark Sturt, I have one thing on my mind
Up the Guts t-shirt, no more waiting, you are ever so kind
Please join us next year, your new profession will make you billionaires
Holding up the peloton at Bitter Springs, maybe he should become a farmer
Up like a flash, no time to lie idle, the Stormin Norman train
Your friendship and camaraderie surely heaven sent
I'm guessing happy you didn't end up on a hospital guerney
Hopefully in the future, April will join the Smiddy throng
People like you to join us, definitely part of a select few
Masseus, barista, anything asked, you'd do
Thanks Yvette, and one day a lucky man will marry
Hermann would be so proud, please know we love you too
You capture Smiddy memories to go down in folklore
Lead car driver extraordinaire, we need more of them!
We love you mate, and in 2013 Westy was the name unveiled
2017 A2D, Rob Chatfield because the hurricane, he is not impressed
For Captain Kevvy, thank god, he does not like to drive fast!
Thanks to you, Smiling for Smiddy has evolved
