Ode to Bicycles

IMG_9776

I see you there, bicycle

Leaning on the wall

Waiting for your rider

As in a shop  they call

IMG_9767

You are a swift and silent steed

As you canter through the streets

Your tires are pumped

Your saddle plumped

No need for bribes or treats

IMG_9524

You have your own marked laneway

That no one would dare cross

Without a quick glance left and right

Unless they’re up for loss

A police outline of a flattened mother & child and the bicycle they suspect did it

Police outline of a flattened mother & child and the bicycle they suspect did it

No helmet for your rider

In Helsinki it’s not needed

Road rules apply, no cars defy

And safety’s always heeded

IMG_9657

So there you wait, outside cafes

Ready to get rollin’

I can’t believe that you’re still there

In Sydney you’d be stolen.
