Sermon on Your “Mount”

[EDITORIAL NOTE: Today, at Time Goes By, there is a discussion about one of the recent stories on this blog. You will find it here - Ronni.]

By D. Sugar

For a cycle owner
The ultimate boner
Is not to protect the head.

And the folks with the spokes
Would stop making jokes
If they read the statistics instead.

For the death rate is high
In states that deny
There's a need for legislation.

But a strong helmet clause
In all state highway laws
Would be many a biker's salvation.


[INVITATION: All elders, 50 and older, are welcome to submit stories for this blog. They can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, etc. Instructions for submitting are here.]

A friend just leaving on his Yamaha motorcyle said, as he was putting on his helmet, "There are no fender-benders on motorcycles."

A witty ditty on the nitty-gritty of a necessity, for those with a proclivity towards stupidity, naivety, and perhaps calamity! - Sandy
