    1. I’m a young fine lady who’s studied fashion design, planning to buy her 1st car soon,so this opportunity of having to be surrounded by beautiful cars at the BMW International Polo Series will be a wind breaker for me. I’m a liker of things especially genuine and I believe that me being there to witness such beauty of cars and meeting new people will be a big deal and eye opener on knowing cars. I’d love to be based on the fashion side as well and help decide the best dressed couple.

    1. I wana win tickets to the polo, cause it’s true when they say YOLO (you only live once)
      Since I was a baby girl I’ve loved horses, I love BMW’s more than Porsches
      Tickets going to the most deserving punter? For awesome competitions, I’m a hunter
      So no need to drag along other contestants, coz they’re only going to need anti-depressants

      If you knew me you would know that I’m a winner, I eat smiley faces and laughs for my dinner
      Sunday vibes in Sunninghill is my kind of place, mail me back and say I’ve won the race
      I would like win this prize for me and my boyfriend, to attend the polo series would be godsend
      I’m going to write another rhyme and eat a sundae, ‘til you announce that I’m the winner on Monday 

    1. So I’m back again and ready to grovel at your feet, ‘coz I can’t wait to see my own chauffeur pull up my street
      I’m a classy girl so I know these things, my partner and I will be queen and king
      If you think I’ll stop you better think twice, coz winning this prize would be beyond just nice
      VIP is my game you can see it by my chain, I’m working really hard so please say my name
      Like I said before I’m doing this for my man, I will do whatever it takes coz that’s the plan
      If I have to write another rhyme for you to hear me, then watch this space, pretty soon you’ll see me

    1. I am a former design student with an insane passion for fashion and all things extravagant. I deserve the tickets because I appreciate and enjoy the finer things life has to offer and I’m sure with Bmw as the sponsor it will be nothing short of that.

    1. Two days left and I’m still on a roll, winning this prize is still my number one goal,
      I don’t know what more I still need to prove, all I know is thsat I’m not going to lose
      I could go on about my life and how chic I am, but living in the burbs should already tell you my plan
      I don’t plan to quit any of my lame rhymes, but if I win this one I might advance to fresher lines :)

    1. One day left ’til you say who’s won, tomorrow morning I’ll be up at dawn
      Waiting to se if I had any luck, coz if I don’t win that would really suck
      I wana flutter ’round in the marquee, rubbing shoulders with other VIP
      Arrive in style looking hotter by a mile greeting everyone I know from A to Z

      A sweet start to summer this could be, it would really be a bummer if the winner aint me
      I’ve been pushing hard for four days now, I think my creative punting deserves a curtsy or a bow
      Or even better yet to win this prize, happiness and excitement will show in my eyes
