bad move prav
i'm trying to lighten the mood here!
let it die then... :-(
no, every one must see how low you have fallen!
I'm shit at haiku aswell.
How about bicycle sonnets?
At least some velo rhyming couplets.
go on then...
come on everyone, roll up, roll up!
Provenrad has laid down a gauntlet you must figure is fairly easy to pick up...
Chris - can you do any better?
Provenrad you know my views - great guy, poor grasp of meter..
Not a limerick:
Sleek. Fast. Deadly-silent is the fixiebike.
Spots a gap -
which closes fast.
Not fast enough to beat that fixiebike.
prav is a lanky boy
his poem threads are epic fail
he dissed by haiku
I'll throw in a prize for the best fixed-related limerick, how's that.
I searched ebay for arrospok,
but did not budget for a lock.
Parked in the east end
and thieves did descend
I walked home feeling like a cock.
so people are generally
just writing words
and arranging them
in lines now are they?
edit: at last a kind of limerick!
mine was a haiku
^ No it isn't/wasn't
yeah it is/was
bike haikus are just outside of this thread sir, if you go down a bit that way points down you'll find them there sir.
not that it was a haiku Chris - 6-8-5 on your last one - so now counting can be added to spelling on your "list of things to do"
gene gene made a machine
joe joe made it go
art art did a fart
and blew whole damn thing apart!
Off topic: My favorite Limerick...
There once was a man from Bombay,
who modeled a cunt out of clay.
The heat from his dick
turned the clay into brick,
and wore all his foreskin away.
Edit: I'll be leaving now... hangs head in shame
A vapid young hipster from Shoreditch
Rode a fixie that made an old sore itch
When his girlfriend asked why
He continued to try
He replied "I'm a media whore bitch"
i luv my denim white,
i luv my denim tight.
i buffed my saddle with all my might,
but the stains are still a fright! :(
A mad scientist came from down under,
Our ebay he started to plunder.
He built so many bikes;
even I thought 'Yikes!'
And his mankini did make me chunder.
a lanky man bought a frame,
to be one in the hipster game,
caygill was it's name,
its broken now what a shame!
A tattooed young Aussie called Dale
Was repellent to all things female
Though he tried all he could
They knew he was no good
So they all ran away - Epic Fail
i would give philjamas rep but i cant.
There was gang yoot from West Ealing
who bought a bike just for dealing.
His unipac was FAIL.
He sought the holy grail,
and nicked a vivalo for wheelying.
