Poem #4: Imperfect, Limerick, Enjambment


All for Race Day

Triathletes train every day of the week.

Swim, bike, run. Perfection they seek.

For months they prep for the big dance,

Miles in the bank could pay a big advance.

Unless of course, they short change their peak.

A late afternoon test ride down the Road to Nowhere and back.
