Beware, Johan: Jet-Powered Man Becomes Fastest South African

Back when we were the head of our undergrad art/lit publication, somebody always ended up getting a story or poem into the book because he or she happened to be sleeping with one of the staffers during the selection process. The most egregious of these pieces was entitled "Beware Yohar," and we shall reproduce it for you below:

Beware Yohar
There are things in the sand
where you stand.
Beware Yohar
The sand is slipping
and tripping at your feet.
Beware Yohar
Ahead of you
is hope and fear.
Behind you
lies memory and regret.
Look Down Yohar
Here, Now,
Look Down

We're sorry to subject you to the near-Vogon quality of verse, but when we saw that a man named Johan Jacobs just became the holder of the South African Land Speed Record at 509km/h (316.277mph), and hopes to set a 1-mile world acceleration record, we couldn't help but think of old Yohar. And giggle. A lot.
