A Glance at Tour de France

From 1996 to 1998
Armstrong won
his race with cancer
crossing the survivor line
walking tall and thin
wearing a smile
hugging children

On 24 July 2005
Armstrong won his
Tour de France
crossing the finish line
sitting tall and proud
before a cheering crowd

But all was not well
in the French citadel

'We were all fooled! '
cried Leblanc
from his tower tooled
'Armstrong owes an explanation
to the world and our French nation.'

'How could this be so? '
asked people
Answered LeBlanc,
'When we thawed Armstrong's
peepee - vintage 1999
we discovered the drug

Voices cried high and low
'Please tell us this isn't so! '

When asked on TV
about his tainted peepee
Armstrong replied without blinking
The only thing I remember
from 1999
is drinking some stinking
French wine.'

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
