Ode to a Beacon race mug

Now ever since Dave broke the Barclays mug that I got free from an internships fair (it's no longer homeomorphic to a torus) I've had to take my Becon race mug with me to maths to get water. I got it after I completed a seven mile route up and down the Malvern Beacons, an awesome race that everybody should attempt just for the view. This mug even comes with a poem on it, which would make it an extra good mug if the poem wasn't quite so poor.

Ode To A Beacon Race Mug

In spite of all that I know and fear
I'm going to run again next year
So second Saturday in October
I'm joining the few
Who's pain is eased
by the fabulous view

This poem just doesn't make any sense to me, I think it would flow much better if they got rid of second Saturday. In fact then it might be quite a good poem. As it is this mug comes second out of two in the list of my favourite mugs that Dave hasn't broken, it's not a patch on my Britain in Europe mug.
