Inspired by the Games!


‘Inspire a Generation’ has been a wonderful legacy from these Olympic Games. Following on from a group of pensioners who made a short film posted on U-Tube, I decided to try a new sport. While harvesting oats, I looked around the grain store for an idea and my eyes settled on the moisture-testing spear…

The Baldock Bard has been inspired
By the games this year
He’s had a go at Javelin
With a moisture testing spear!

He stepped out from the grain store
And with a wimpy roar
Drew his arm back with all his might
And watched the tester soar!

It flew up over the tractor shed
Its flight was straight not bent
Landed in the heap of oats
And measured fourteen percent!
