From shipyard summer wages
I got myself a horse.
a soldered steed of tapered steel
with gears to match my strength
A steed for youthful eagerness,
a steed in red and black,
a steed that took me there and back,
through urban wilderness
I kept it in my bedroom,
my ticket to be cool,
I kept it very safe a while,
my ticket to be late at night,
my ticket to meet girls.
And thus I met with you.
Then, one morning it was gone,
it was stolen — it was lost.
Forfeit my shiny steed of steel
but still you stayed with me ….
At real toads, Herotemost wants us to write about our first “vehicle”, mine was a 12 speed french roadbike, and it rocked a lot to be able to get around. It was my companion for about two years, and during that time I met with my wife to be. But one night my bicycle was stolen outside her apartment.
