Did you write Wilko a witty ditty?
Around the Academy:

Did you write Wilko a witty ditty?  Then check to see if you're an Academy winner!
Did you fancy rhyming your way to a SIGNED Jonny Wilkinson poster?

One of the people who was out of the running for this top prize was the man who gave us the idea for this fantastic comp!

The Queen's poet, Andrew Motion decided to celebrate Jonny Wilkinson's Godliness in the form of a poem.

But sadly he couldn't find a word that rhymed with Wilkinson.

So we wondered, could our Academy readers do any better? Yeah, course you could!

To give you an idea what you're up against, these were the Poet Laureate's first few lines.

O Jonny the power of your boot
And the accurate heart-stopping route
Of your goal as it ghosts
Through Australian posts
Is a triumph we gladly salute

And to help you on your way, here's the Academy's offering...

There was a young man called Jonny
His right foot was rather quite bonny
He kicked a few goals
Cheered up millions of souls
Not bad for a whinging Pommie!

Well you got the idea and the rhymes came pouring in by the bucket load!

The Academy team will read through them, and post the winner on the site in the next few days.
