A Glance at Tour de France Poem by William Waterway


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
seventh
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
EPO

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

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