Pedal High, Pedalo

Eagerly we pedalled off, our early speed was great,
But after fifteen minutes, we began to slow our rate.
The muscles twitching in my thighs, my hamstring tendons pumping,
Panting like a rabid dog, my left aorta thumping.

And so we ceased our cycling to recuperate at length,
Desperately seeking to restore our errant strength,
But when we looked around beneath the hot and burning sun,
We found that we had drifted back to where we had begun.
