dorando pietri

are you with me?
dorando pietri
the italian marathon runner in the 1908 olympics
who was so knackered he kept falling over
like so knackered he's staggering all over the place
beyond exhaustion
so some stupid officials helped him over the line
and he got disqualified
well i was that marathon runner
sans disqual
and now i'm home
final show was beautiful
a dream

  1. The final show (on the Sunday) was superb. Then again, your first show (on the Friday) was equally sublime - a fascinating mélange of history, political drama and tax comedy.
