Every Wednesday morning when some are sound asleep
A bonny group of lasses stir and through their homes they creep
Unearth their hats, their sunnies, their walking poles too
Cuppa tea, plus pitstop (‘cause there may not be a loo)
In the car, off they go….errrr where’s the meeting spot?
Stop the car, double-check….(this happens quite a lot)…
Then the clock is ticking; they know they can’t be late.
The captain has her standards; she’s NEVER going to wait
For dawdlers or delayers among her able crew
‘If you’re there, you’re there’; otherwise it’s tootle loo!
Then the tracks–with ups and downs, often stairs galore
Always great but even better if your calves get sore
And perspiration? Yes, that’s like Niagara Falls
Conversation flowing too, scarcely any pause.
Such gobsmacking scenery we all get to see
That’s thanks to the captain (her name is Fee)
And her able fellow leaders (maps fill their brains;
also, we suspect, that adrenalin fills their veins).
To these Wednesday champions, led by Super Fee
Let’s have a rousing cheer now on the count of three!
