The life, times of a reckless biker

Fast like the wind, cool breeze in my face,

Nothing is better than biking place to place.

It is the best to feel so cool

When riding my bike to school.

I never cross to the correct side of the street,

Not when there’s the clock to be beat.

It is fun to play chicken, like in “Footloose,”

With people going the direction of intended use.

I dodge through traffic when ever I like.

I have the right of way, I am on a bike.

I love the adrenaline rush when pulling in front of a car.

I ignore the rules, whatever they are.

This is how I used to be,

Before a car hit me

I should have used a signal and waited my turn.

I’m just happy I didn’t end up in an urn.
