Le Tour

A rainbow  of  colour  speeds  through  the countryside

Circling , circling spinning around  and around.

Rushing  through  towns  and villages  far  and wide.

Pumping,  pumping  up  and down  eating up  the ground.

 

Nations united all in the race  sweat and pain shown in the face.

Riding  the wheel  of  the man  in the lead

Nothing  but winning  matters  in this race.

Ignoring the falls even if  they  bleed.

 

 

Speeding  speeding to set up  the  lead

Racing  away  from  the  pack of  the peloton

Eating up  the miles  with incredible  greed

One slip of  concentration and whoosh  your  lead  is just  gone.

 

Motor bikes,scooters, cars  and vans follow  the riders

Throwing  gifts  to the crowd hoping  they will behave

The excitement is  mounting  here  they come,  and go like  gliders.

The roads so  crowded with onlookers, ignore  them just  be brave.

 

Climbing the mountains  in the pouring  rain,

Your  heart  is thumping,  pumping your head wants  to explode

Speeding  through  the valleys the sun out again.

Rushing  to the finish it’s  the finale sprint all those wheels and feet implode!

 

Time  for celebrating  jersey’s   to award

The domstiques are exhausted  they have done all the work

The teams  and spectators are happy  to applaud.

Tomorrow is another stage  so wasted effort is  something they cannot  afford!
