Honeymoon City Toastmasters
An Evening with Mark Hunter
By David Smith April 14, 2010
Only one walks away as the world champ we can see;
Being a participant; what’s in it for me?
Rick Lundy had the polish and finesse.
To guide this meeting; as it performed to its best;
Slang words and phrases had a table topics spin.
To get the adrenaline flowing, to tame those butterflies within;
A tenth speech we heard tonight;
A walk to first base was really in flight;
Shake up the dirt and step up;
We found a way to get out of a rut;
Thanks be to a donkey down in a well;
The dirt and negativity can be rather swell;
A chuck or a phoenix we head the way;
We need the dust to soar some day;
Feed the audience, a message so grand;
Live and love when you take the stand;
Dust, the fertilizer, what we need to improve
To develop character and get out of a groove;
So take a risk and let it fly;
That’s the joy, potential we cry!
