Expedition 36- veloma in verse!

    0 29

    So let’s talk about expedition 36

    You may at times have felt it a bit fixed
    what with no viz, we’ve all been in a bit of a tizz
    What with all the storms, we’ve all been a bit forlorn.

    No diving today, that’s what we say!
    we have ridden the storms together, so no more talk of the weather
    But let’s talk about what you have done.

    At moments you have completely shone
    and for sure we will be sad to see you all gone

    ’cause your achievements have been very long.

    We had a fantastic open day
    when all the kids came out to play
    the children got dunked and sucked on some air
    they didn’t see fishes but they didn’t care.

    Turtle racing was fun, and we put on a show
    - even the president had a go.
    Monsier Roger even joined in the fray
    making Beck’s heart leap with his condom display.

    Your posters were super, smashing, great
    A real asset to the collection to date
    The pirogue race will surely be remembered by all

    Great strength was shown, i think you’ll agree we all had a ball.

    Then onto the singing, our time in the spotlight
    I hope we didn’t give the villagers too much of a fright.

    Technical problems and hitches galore
    But Bic’s presentation still wowed the floor
    It was great, but we mustn’t forget
    Expedition 36… isn’t over yet

    Yet more bad weather, and more rain that fell
    So off to Bevato, we all yell.
    Up there we have mangroves and baobabs too,
    but watch out for mosquitos when doing a poo!

    Climbing up trees and traipsing through mud,

    and even more mosquitos sucking your blood.

    On our return, it’s like a new place.
    No wind and good viz, and now a smile on your face.
    Now three and a half kilometre square of belts
    in only four days – watch our scientist’s hearts melt.

    You have all been so great, so bask in your glory
    when you regail to your friends expedition 36’s story.
    And especially remember when talking of Andavadok
    Explain about the fashion of wearing one sock.
    So never forget your Vazaha foty foty
    and always remember mampiasa kapoty!!!

    * Editors note:
    mampiasa kapoty” means “to use condoms”
