THE RIDE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

'Twas the night before Christmas and there on the floor,
My bike was in pieces, won't run any more.
The sprockets were hung on the wall on a nail
The chain sat soaking over there in a pail.

While over in the corner sitting on a bench
Was a busted off bolt and a twisted up wrench.
The bolt sheared off clean when I twisted it loose
And I banged up my knuckle, what a sorry excuse.

I went in the house to get a cold brew
'Cause I really didn't know what else to do.
So I sat on the couch and shed a brief tear
No holiday ride for me this year.

When there arose so much noise from out in the street
That I dropped the doughnut I was trying to eat.
Away to the window I fled with my beer
Peaked through the curtains and trembled with fear

There on the street in a big blue haze
Was a jolly old elf who looked kind of dazed.
He was riding a bike, a two stroke I think.
He nodded my way and gave me a wink.

He was dressed head to toe in a red suit of leather.
With a helmet and gloves he was all put together.
He spoke not a word as he ran to my shop.
He adjusted my valves he took out the slop.

Then he ran to the bench to that busted off bolt.
He hit it real hard really gave it a jolt.
Then he backed out the bolt and cleaned up the threads.
While I bandaged my knuckle that thing really bled.

He put on the chain and a brand new sprocket.
And he tightened it up with a torque wrench and socket.
Then he cleaned up my shop and I gave him a cheer,
While out on his bike, he put it in gear.

I ran out to the street, shouting my praise
As he vanished from sight is a blue smoky haze.
When rounded the corner he wheelied and cried
"Happy Christmas to all and to all a good ride."

Cheers, Lee S.:D

Nope, can't take credit for that one. Got it from a guy in one of our groups who wrote it[8D].
Just thought i'd share.
Cheers, Lee S.

Time for speedvlaze to be a dork![:eek:)]




I wish an elf would do that for me
so then I could just sit and watch my TV.

If only elves were so thrifty.
Man, that would be so nifty!

I know I could get it all done by myself,
but nothing's better than letting an elf.

I really do hope he knows what he's doing,
for I'd hate to be the person who’s suing.

Can you imagine the look on my face
if my wheel came off and I land on my face?
Heck, I may even lose that race!
Nah… who am I kidding?
I set the pace.[8D]

I'm sure that would make Mr. Poe happy.
God I'm tired, isn't this crappy?

A very good poem, very good indeed.
Thank you for posting, and providing the read.

So congratulate your friend for writing that up.
I suck at rhyming, time to shut up.;)

Didn't mean to disappoint you. [^]
Where I'm from, we'd call you 100% Grade A DelMonte Corn.
But at least you tried. :D
