On the edge of all nerves,
The edge of which,
Disaster meets the crasher with death.

Where the brave are men and one lady,
Who fight with hearts and souls.
Who respect the fact that death shall stalk them.

Lurking in the shadows,
Lurking around the bend,
Lurking in a component that won't make it to the end.

Where drivers were toys for amusement,
And discarded when dead not alive.
In the 1950's of Formula One,

Only the lucky survived.
The woman in the picture is Maria Teresa de Filippis, the first female Formula One driver, she competed in the late 50s and is the lady mentioned in the poem. I got the image off of Google.

This poem is about the dangerous nature of Formula One during its early life.
