The h2g2 Poem

Stretching Myself

So they asked us all to join

in that marvellous Stretcher thing

Stretched myself up to a point

Threw myself in with much zing.

But I must have got it wrong

Cause I've waited for so long

And so far they didn't mention

As they'd said was their intention

Non-contestants who submitted.

Must be me who is dim-witted,

Unlike Opti and McKay:

Successfully did they foray

Into t'glamerous Stretcher world

Where their stories they unfurled.

And the lesson I did learn?

For recognition not to yearn

I shouldn't aspire

To something higher.
