Lance

by Derek Morrison

Hi, it’s me; my name is Lance
Former God of Tour de France
I was once the one to beat
No! No! I didn’t cheat
I was once the media pet
Not treated like a Soviet
Now they sue for money back
While I could still lead the pack
My reputation to rehabilitate
I really don’t deserve this fate
Why Faustian pact did the devil sell
Now trying to pull me down to hell
Hi, it’s me; my name is Lance
Former God of Tour de France
Hi, it’s me; my name is Lance
Former God of Tour de France
Hi, it’s me; my name is Lance
Former God of Tour de France
Hi, it’s me……..

Commentary

There is a wealth of material about Lance Armstrong. The story and lawsuits rumble on, e.g. see http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/cycling/31495246. The inspiration here was the tragic lead character in Christopher Marlowe’s Dr Faustus.
