When the world seems dystopian
We bring you an event away from the podium.
Problems might be umpteen, solutions only some.
Some child’s play, others herculean,
Think of us as a brain gymnasium.
Gather every capable friend,
Let’s see how much your minds bend.
Put your creative skills to test,
You might win, If you’re the best!
Read further and you’ll know the rest.
