Are there any poetry fans out there? Perhaps you will recall that William Carlos Williams poem that he reportedly left for his wife where he apologizes without really apologizing at all. I was reminded of it by a recent “This American Life” episode and thought it would be fun to write a spoof. While it’s not cyclocross, it’s still cycling and topical.

This is just to say (from Boonen to Ballan and Cancellara)

I sprinted around you for the victory
Your legs had nothing left
Forgive me, the win inside the velodrome was amazing
