You may be surprised, I know,
To read this rhyming post today,
And although I’m not a pro,
I hope it will be OK.
(So bear with me)
When we saw the nomination
In the bab.la competition,
We almost needed resuscitation
And thought we had an eye condition.
(Pretty accurate depiction of our faces)
Just kidding, it was fantastic,
So many people we admire…
We are really enthusiastic
To be part of the bab.la ‘shire’.
(Or should we say kingdom?)
The Language Lovers Competition
Has grown year by year;
It has become a tradition
That we all hold dear.
(And we hope it will continue)
Spreading the love since 2008,
They also provide inspiration.
We all think it’s really great
So we’ve made this illustration.
(Yes, another one; is it too much? 🙂 )
My love for language is undying,
But I have a secret passion
For all things numbers – I’m not lying
And also for fashion.
(But that’s not relevant)
Numbers on a graph look great,
So here’s one to be shown:
From 2008 till the present date
This competition has grown.
(Looks promising, doesn’t it?)
Now all you have to do is vote
Lots of worthy candidates
First line rhymes with ‘goat’
And the second with ‘acetates’.
(Total ramblings, so no more rhyming, I promise)
