Done with my streaking
You should have seen their eyes
How they popped out
More of surprise than anger
They did not expect anything like this
And it was also a stroke of good luck
I did not anticipate the large crowd
Tonight it was somehow unusual
And they were very sporting
Did you see the guy with the red hat
The burly and menacing looking
I thought he was trying to stop me
I started with a slow run further down
The ladies were already screaming
when I reached him
He came at me
I thought he was swinging a punch
Lo and behold! He cleared the path
for me. He was making it easier for me
In fact he followed slowly to make
sure I had a clear passage
I owed him one!
It was pretty tiring
That was a long run
I had better get back to my bike
Hey! Who switched on my lights!
What happened to my clothes?
I was lucky I hid my wallet and bike keys
under the stone in the bush
I’ll better go get them
Next time for a streaking stint
No more bikes!
Bring the car!
