Endurance


The Poets' Garret

The Poets’ Garret

Throbbing engines engaged with wheels
After the straight smoking brake squeals
On thunder road the battle done
Man and machine fighting as one
Demons of speed foot to the floor
Excited the crowd calls for more
Thrusting forward ripping through gears
Behind the wheel can be no fears
Fuming exhausts hitting the drag
Screeching speed past the chequered flag
The war over in commotion
A winner’s tears show emotion
His body wrecked through endurance
But the machine has left the dance

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
