GP bloody S by Anonymous

GP bloody S,
Fell shoes, shorts and running vest,
This sport need not be complicated,
No need for things to be updated.
Satellite data to help us pace it?
That’s not fellrunning, just face it.

GP bloody S,
I just don’t get it, I confess,
What’s wrong with old ways: compass, maps,
Now we need ‘distance elapsed’,
Displayed in digits on our wrist,
Comfort blankets in the mist.

GP bloody S,
Old school skills to pass this test,
Endless reccies – ‘know the lines’,
Lazy people, modern times.
Dumbing down so they can’t fail,
Flashing arrow; breadcrumb trail.
