Spokane Riders of Spokefest Viewers, stall holdersMayor giving encouraging speechCity of artisansLook at them and see all of the hopeLook at them and see all of the fun Look at them and see all of the energy and excitementFeel all of the tenseness as they prepare to start Feel all of the resentment as those lucky few get to race aheadFeel as the city itself rides with them At the stalls afterwards I look forward to as we get closer to the finishAt the park I wait for, for peace and tranquilityAt the mall I hope for food and fun while shopping They told me that it was too hardI laughed at them They told me that it was too long I ignored them They told me that it was too steepI just looked at them They told me all of these things Did I believe them NoIt is a city of excitement and exercise To go there, you have to prove your worthI didAnd I became part of the city
