on missing a chance to ride my bicycle

June 9, 2014

Shoulda rode
Coulda rid
Always something
Didn’t did

Ain’t that things
Needs be done
Always do it
Just for fun

Must be choosin
Dooty or fun
Today sad day
Work gets done

Tomorrow sunny
Or maybe rain
Two wheels calling
All the same


From → humor, poetry

  1. Wonderful. I miss riding bike… Haven’t gone for years, and my bike needs a MAJOR overhaul before I can go again.

  2. Oh, perfect! Love your play with words. Nicely done fun. Thank you for the smile. Shouldawouldacoulda…done.

  3. you must be from Milwaukee WI… I’ve heard that slang there

  4. Hope you get to do that asap!

  5. A fun piece.

  6. and fun read too….

  7. I love bicycles and poems about bicycles and thinking about bicycles. A nice vehicle for this poem – I enjoyed the ride.

  8. Smile, chortle, chuckle, snort–way too much fun going on over here; thanks for the levity. I may need to report you to the Fun Police.

  9. Our lives appear to be made up of a series of ‘shoulds’ Bill. I’m no exception, I should have walked today but I haven’t. Thanks for reminding me….

  10. This sounds like the kind of good resolutions I have taken at the beginning of a school year.

  11. hypercryptical permalink

    Lush stuff. I had a bike once – should buy another.
    Anna :o]

  12. Ha-enjoyed this fun piece!

  13. i love riding cycless…. i sold my last one and am desperately waiting for new one… πŸ™‚

  14. Oh, I hear you on this, Bill. Ha, I have a bike in my garage I should have ridden…..all summer..and didn’t. Now, after reading your poem, I feel even more guilty.

    • I hope you let your guilt pass with a smile πŸ™‚ This was just a playful verse.

  15. One thing i love about martial arts is there is always room to ride.

    And my tires never go i too once a cycling enthusiast with thousand and thousands of
    miles in tires gone by..

    But give me space to move my arms..

    And the arms of life never move the same
    in golden spiraled flow…

    Never a caged bird am i
    no longer

  16. Shucks on the bad weather ~ Hope you find a good time to ride away ~

    • about 1,000 miles so far this year, but some days double check that the couch is soft πŸ™‚

  17. I might take my road bike for a ride tomorrow… Today I went running .. You captured the wheels rolling in your lines,

  18. i rode my bike just yesterday but didn’t have a chance today… ugh – when work comes in the way of fun… tomorrow maybe…smiles

  19. oh i hate when dooty gets in the way of fun

    growing up i rode my bike everywhere….
    i need to get a bike again…my mountain bike is about wore out…

    • buying a new bike is a chance to be a kid again.

      We ( my wife and I ) so like to buy bikes that we started a little foundation to give bikes to kids who don’t have them. Last year we gave 4 – it keeps me young at heart and makes me smile more than you think possible

  20. “lol”

  21. Chuckles! Love this twist of humor in your ride, I mean write! Great!


    • Thanks – I was thinking if a poem gets a smile or chuckle, then that’s a poem that worked.

  22. When a person got to ride – he needs to ride πŸ™‚

    I used to ride in groups but now, mostly do it solo – hit the road as/when I feel like it πŸ™‚
