A Boy Needs A Bike

February 21, 2021

Not sure why this popped in my head

Then is being released from my brain

Through my fingers onto this screen

If it doesn’t make sense don’t blame me

.

But Jewel was right

.

A Boy Needs A Bike

.

For a moment thought

A boy needs parents

Perhaps, but only for so long

.

After all that is how you get here

Beyond that you are on your own

.

“A man needs a car and a boy needs a bike”
I got my first taste of freedom

Beneath the light of the moon

But if it were me I’d have the guts

To put to test those bolts and nuts

And I’d ride away so fast, so far

Ride away, so fast, so far”

.

– Jewel

.

That bike turned into a car

Which manifested into

A tractor trailer with

Eighteen to twenty-six wheels

.

Still savoring that taste of freedom

.

Writing this made me realize the one

Video game I conquered was

Atari’s “Night Driver”

Only to start over and play again

.

On to the next big thing

.

“Space Trucking”

.

– Deep Purple

.

“We had a lot of luck on Venus

We always had a ball on Mars

Meeting all the groovey people

We’ve rocked the Milky Way so far

We danced around with Borealice

We’re space truckin’ round the the stars

Come on, come on, come on let’s go Space trucking
Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking
Remember when we did the moonshot

And Pony Trekker led the way

We’d move to the Canaveral moonstop

And everynaut would dance and sway

We got music in our solar system
We’re space truckin’ round the stars

Come on, come on, come on let’s go Space trucking

Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking
The fireball that we rode was moving

But now we’ve got a new machine

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said

Man those cats can really swing

They got music in their solar system

They’ve rocked around the Milky Way

They dance around the Borealice

They’re Space Truckin’ everyday

Come on, come on, come on let’s go Space trucking

Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking
Come on, come on, come on let’s go Space trucking

Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Space trucking

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Space trucking

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Space trucking

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”

.

Geez, for once, did not overexplain things
