The Smile

He rides so fast, He rides so quick, He rides faster than a speeding bullet.
In and out of the cars he goes, over bridges down narrow roads.
In to a bend he leans his bike, over and over as the bend is so tight.
Out of the bend on the other side, He pulls away, his back wheel does slides.
The tyre then grips with such a punch, the front wheel lifts, the gears he crunch.
He gains control and speeds away, He smiles as he lives to ride another day.
