the commuter

The commuter

The sun still hides
The air is so still
yet miles do I ride
up and over a big hill

moon lights my path
peacefully I do ride
a breeze at my back
over pavement I glide

rubber meets the road
burning in my thighs
my bike carries the load
the sun starts to rise

to the office I get
wasting so much time
a day full of bull****
and dreaming of my bike

I take it back...path/back doesn't quite rhyme either. It's great then.

If it all rhymed and one didn't it sounds funny. If they are consistently inconsistent, then all is good, no expectations.


Good stuff!

MV this is a really cool poem - I really do like it.

It is indeed within your heart if you can write something like this rather than search on google. Thank you for sharing it with us. This is very awesome!!

I once saw a bike riding fred
Who pedaled more like he was dead
When I passed that dumb **** < feces
In his new postal kit
A decal fell off his Sram Red
