CCXXXVI - The Bike

.
Magpie Tales had the above poster as a prompt.


The Bike

In a thin gown,
She rode through the town,
And declared that it gave her a thrill.

She didn’t straddle
But rode it side-saddle
A trick that only works down hill.

She took great delight
To ride in sunlight
But exposed her breasts when it was shady.

While a bike is okay,
To be transported away
I’d much rather be riding the lady.

  4. Cosmo,
    A lot many guys would want to ride the same. A good cheeky piece!

    And what may I ask is God's gift to women?

  6. Cosmo,
    I think we'll just leave it at that. The only thing I know now is that you'll be a regular peek and I've put myself on as a follower. Cheers!

  9. Been reading Sweet Chilli Sauce - Nigerians. I was curled up :) I am heading back there soon for more entertainment. I loved the Mavis Bramston one. I'm passing it on to friends too.

  10. lol! So lyrical and so well done. She might be able to expose her breasts more regularly if she used sunscreen ;)
