Funeral Poems For A Cyclist: "THE TOUR DE UNIVERSE"

"THE TOUR DE UNIVERSE"

I'm under starter's orders

For the Tour de Universe

With the weight of the world

Off my shoulders

I should be quicker ...

Than a turbo-charged hearse

 

With no more fear

Of personal injury

Nipple and jock itch

Doesn't matter now

If I corner too fast ...

And end up in the ditch

 

With dreams of a yellow jersey

Cycling & time trials for evermore

Just cheer me on my way now ...

Do feel free to clap and roar

 

Michael Ashby, Sidmouth

Sincere thanks to wonderful Sandra Norburn of HUMANISM 4 YOU who brought about this poem. I dedicate this poem both to her late father ... and also to the 'serious cyclist' for whom we created this poem.
