Anthony Di'anno

Freshman - 1,636 Points (Yorkshire)

Sheepgoat's Cheesedream

Louder than the people not listening,

Immune to a gormless glassy eyed stare,

Brighter than the stars that are glistening,

Sharper than the purest fresh mountain air,

Stands Promise beyond it's first christening,

While a weary old man sleeps in a chair,

The pit is dark and the cavern is wide,

There they patiently wait, either side,

And no one moves for fear of Rejection,

Until Experience takes to the floor,

Insists upon a final inspection,

Frail Hope gets searched and thrown out of the door,

Then Promise says 'I think I should mention,

The weary old man is rising once more.'

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
