Thread Name: bikers in songs - do they ever survive?
Subject: RE: bikers in songs - do they ever survive?
21 years ago, I wrote this in response to a challenge. I never got round to a tune.

Oh dear, a challenge! That taxes my brain
but Iíve done it before - I can do it again!
Now - a title - a topic - a thought to begin.
My mind is a blank, what a state I am in!

World events? Too depressing - disasters galore.
The US election? I canít stand any more
(and thereís still half a year to the finishing line).
Which reminds me - Olympics? Well, they should be fine
now that China has opened her doors to the press -
but thatís back to disasters. Oh, what a mess!

Let me look on the bright side - summer is here.
My BM is ready, Iíve checked all my gear.
All I need is the sunshine and Iím off down the lane,
Ďcross the bridge to the beauty of Wales once again.
Welsh roads are a pleasure to ride on two wheels,
Whether motor or leg-driven, how good it feels
to be over the hills, down to valleys so green -
and the girls in the towns are the fairest Iíve seen.

Thatís cheered me up - I can now go to bed
and stop struggling to squeeze poor rhymes from my head!
