moto cycle: a seasonal poem in four parts 


damn! i can’t believe it’s time
for freezing, stormy winter climes

summer went by way too fast
i’m so depressed, don’t even ask!

these ride-less months are such a grind
i know they’re gonna blow my mind

what will i do? how can i cope?
“hey there bro, please pass the –– “


when we are too long inside
we get forlorn and miss our rides

days drag on, there’s too much snow
on roads, trails and tracks we’d rather go

we count the sleeps before we can
go braaap and vrooom, be louder than

“come on warmth, be quick” we pray
”so ride-less we won’t have to stay”


spring’s the thing we all await
seems it’s always far too late

we mark the days ‘til it appears
now, guess what? it’s finally here!

snow is melting, the sun is out
makes us want to dance and shout:

yippee! yahoo! we’re so over hiding
let’s free ourselves and do some riding


here we go, it’s open season
staying home is worse than treason

wake up, rise up, forgo the bottle,
gear up, get out, roll on that throttle!
