Odd Places

Sometimes, inspiration can be found in the oddest of spots. The new song is a shining example of that. Poison is far from a favorite of mine, though I will admit that where sappy rock ballads are concerned, they know what they are doing. And this song was used on our tri club's "year in review" video.

Just consider the first lines:

Hearts of fire
Streets of stone
Modern warriors
Saddle iron horses of chrome

Or the last:

Of all the truths and lies
And stories of riders in the sky
They say only the bravest try
Where eagles and angels dare to fly

And for those who raced IM Wisconsin 2006:

Stories told
Two old friends
Of battle scars and lonely bars
And nights the rain wouldn't end

Perhaps there's room for a bit of poison in the pursuit of iron.

When you're asked to 'Pick your poison", you say "Triathlon"!
