Warning to ALL GBSC members!
There have been sightings of Motivated Monkeys at GBSC!
Sensing from afar the ether of
an unstoppable energy from the Monkeys clawing, scraping, scratching, sanding, smoothing her green & tender soul. Its inspirational, knowing that this team is generating an unstoppable force that will be harnessed & focused on the great challenges ahead, succumbing former gladiators of seasons past to the fires of Valhalla, swamping them in Green bow waves past cans & lights across the bay!
Monkey - can't see, can't hear, can't tell!
Can't see, Can't hear, Can't tell
She's on top of the hill, not below in a well!
She's looking, listening, she's smelling the ether
She's certainly ready, and will definitely feature.
She's shining, shimmering, poised on the quay
Waiting to be unleashed and set free
Painted, polished, oiled and ready
The Monkey's heart is sure beating steady.
The team have prepared by day and by night
Anticipating, anxious and poised for the fight
The Monkey has noticed, she awaits her crew
Straining, motivated, for the season a-new!
There's mention of Odin, and Valhalla too
Of mystical Asgard..... or maybe it's true?
The Valkyries will choose, for they must decide
Ours is to obey, or to Freyja we reside!
Or pride will be strong, our spirit intact
As we gybe and reach, we run and we tack
The cans bob lightly o'er the beautiful bay
With the lights and reflections of the city - Galway
The thrills and the spills, will surely be fun,
As we set sail this summer, the crew will be one
There MAY be a broach, surely not two
As time goes by with this motley crew
So rise up together, with pride and esteem
As we ready the season as one fantastic team
We stand tall and united, prepared for the battle
And racing this season, will get a good rattle.
COME ON THE MONKEY!!!!!!
