Here stands my creation, my very own,
Soon to discover knowledge hitherto unknown,
As it ventures into the uninhabitable zone.
But what is this? Its wisdom has grown
And here I stand, all alone,
Next to my creation and its clones
As if to strip humanity to its bones
The robot and its army of drones
Oh, how humanity has advanced from stone!
But I snap out of my daydream,
No longer alone, here is my team
A firm group of eighteen
That dared to dream
To take on the world’s cream
Over the next few weeks, we shall give our hand
And prepare to make our stand
The Five shall go, hand in hand
To compete exactly as planned
And perhaps even understand
The purpose of the metal shaft collar band
Just in time for the final showdown in Switzerland.
