Saint Lance

Rate: 4 Flag

From terminal cancer to biking champ
Lance Armstrong showed the way
Ingesting mighty performance drugs
Reversing body decay.

Lance Armstrong made the miraculous voyage,
A subject that calls for paint
Or clay or bronze or mountainside,
Becoming a patron saint.

How many aging, sagging men
Took heart from his example
Regarding the reconditioned cyclist
As a saintly sample.

Returning strength and stamina
Have widely replaced carrions
Transforming septuagenarians
Into literal sexagenarians.
