TweetFacebookThe Newcastle Song, with its chorus about never letting a chance go by.

Guess that’s the same kind of attitude that the organisers of Surfest and Supercars had.

They grabbed a chance. They made it happen.

Supercars and ShakespeareTopics wrote yesterday at our surprise that the Supercars event had inspired poetry.

Poetry from Shakespeare’s King Lear.

A post on the Newcastle Echo Facebook page that called for“your best Newcastle 500 poetry” prompted quite a few odes for and against the big race.

Coincidentally, Herald journalist Michael Parris told Topics thatSupercars employees found a protest poem that a resident had painted on the ground, near the track.

The poem went like this:“As flies to wanton boys are we to the V8s: They kill us for their sport.”

Why that sounds like Shakespeare.King Lear, in fact.

Here’s the real version: “As flies to wanton boys are we to thegods. They kill us for their sport.”
