The first of May

Marks that dreadful day

That Ayrton Senna

Passed away

One of the greatest

We may ever have seen

Precise and methodical

He made winning routine

So focused was he

That he?d be entranced

With severe tunnel vision

His car flew while it danced

His battles with Prost

Pushed them to new limits

Ahead of the pack

By not seconds but minutes

A rain master of sorts,

Remember Monaco?

In heavy rains

He put on a show

Brazil ?91

With only 6th gear

A wet victory

For his home fans to cheer

It?s been 18 years

Since the legend?s death

In the hearts of his fans

Despite his last breath

A moment of silence

For the F1 great

As he looks down on us

From behind Heaven?s gate
