Tour de(layed) France

The teams arrayed
anxious to start
the long delayed
but Grand Depart
Glad for the chance
to race through France
as did COVID

  1. Team Covid, indeed!! My sport is rodeo (fan, not participant), and I fear the National Finals Rodeo will be impacted this December. Good news: I’m whipping out more ha’sonnets…maybe a new addiction 🙂 (And spreading the word–another blogger penned his first one!)

    1. Thanks! I don’t know much about rodeo, but I do know it gets crowds. But who knows what will happen by December. Ha’sonnets can be addicting. When they started I cranked out around 30 in my first week. Don’t let it grab too hard! I look forward to reading your new poems and the ha’sonnet of the other author!
