He Was Both The Dope And The Hero

Doping confessing by  Lance Armstrong

Why tell the truth, when a lie can set you free
The sympathy card,  the court jester: with slumbering tears
The windows wipers wipe the milky tears from his eyes.
He compete, and achieves victory  through deceit

Does a hero cheat, his way to victory?

 A hero was never label a bully throughout history
Spiderman, superman , Robin Hood 
   heroes never confessed their sins
The incredible hulk did a powerful transformation 
Restoring international credibility in prime time; 
                       Time after time
A myth is a myth even in the past, present and future.

    Dear Anie, People judge other people by their actions WHEN they should Judge them by the intentions of their actions. So the question remains: If a liar confesses that he is a liar does he lie or does he tell the truth? That is the enigma? Beautifully written regardless what he is. A great work! Thank you!

    I can only imagine how hard fought those wins were drugs or no drugs I for one could never have accomplished them. We need to stop making hero's out of sportsmen. Light & Love
