Said, Tour de France athlete
boosting his body with drugs was not offbeat
His 'win at all cost' odyssey
made him, a world prodigy
and the topic of many "tweet-a-tweet"

smile Good one, Candy, topical and nicely constructed.
except...
I like your "tweet-a-tweet" ending best.
Because in the e-world the term "tete-a-tete" is as passe as "passe" laugh
and...
You forgot to leave us two new words. smile

As it is close to 2:30 AM her time, and she probably won't
get back here until evening time, her time, maybe
if you all want to work on it take her poem and
take two words from it:

maybe

tete-a-tete and passe

Just a suggestion.

Yes...I did.

Prodigy and Protégé commonly confused words

And while I'm there...I may as well tweak last line again 'cause then it will be perfect laugh

Thanks guys.

It's all powder at forty below.
Take the chair lift or grab the rope tow.
Put your mask on your face
And your flippers in place.
It's a great day to snorkel in snow!

The forum software deleted the subject line from my limerick, refused to let me edit it, and won't allow me to reply to it, so I'm trying to post it by replying to Candy's post again.
