after the Worlds I was here in Brazil wondering about someway of showing how much I love robotics and then I tried to make a poem, take a look and give opinions:
You can’t go and just play
You’ve got to get there and say
We’re here to win!
To show what you’ve never seen!
‘Cause we’ve got dreams
Different from most part of teens
Robotics ain’t just about fooling around
It’s all about listing the sound
The sound of truth
The truth behind the youth
It’s all about being free!
Free to feel the best sensation of reward
Of winning the chairman’s award!**
That’s a great poem! I also saw a team who changed the lyrics of I’m On A Boat and wrote about robotics. I’ll see if I can find them and get the lyrics.
Neat poem! I hope you don’t mind my asking if English is your first language (since you’re from Brazil).
Hehe, No, my first language is Portuguese but I simply love English ^^
That’s why I have the dream of going to the USA to the Vex Robotics World Championship or even to the FIRST Nationals, because I’m going to fulfill to of my passion desires: Robotics! and English!
'Cause I’ve never spoken with an American
Well If by any chance I make another poem I’ll post again ^^
I build robots all day,
I have nothing more to say.
Poetry is simple and bliss,
the gears click, pneumatics hiss.
My machine is waiting for the match to start,
my pounding heart, it will not stop.
Poetry is really not my thing,
the match starts, the bell rings.
Five hundred lines of code execute at once,
all in a small jump.
At once my robot shines,
just like this poem, nothing but lines.
Two minutes later, the match is done.
It is over, we have won.

Robotics, truly a wonderful thing
Get your parts ready, can’t wait to think
Ding! The lightbulb in my head just became bright yellow
Sing! There’s no need to be mellow
Because working with a team is always great
No need for hate, walk through the champion gate!
Make sure you get your gear ratios right
Gearing one to 75 will only lead to your spite
Coaches, I didn’t forget about you
Without communication, what would I do?
However, make sure you plug in all the cables
Or else you’ll be the clown in our robotics fable
Very impressive! I have studied a second language, and I could never write poetry in it.
Since this thread is becoming a poetry collection, here’s one from last year (a song, actually).
Battles hard for tech glory
