Zeke and His Old Lady Take To the Road Again

Zeke and His Old Lady Ride Again

By Elton Camp

Men trembled when Zeke appeared
In his black leather jacket and beard

When he and his gang rode into town,
Why, even the sheriff would back down

His defiant look and motorcycle roar
Portended what might well be in store

It was Lou who his “old lady” became
Sexy and trim, she was quite a dame

On his Harley the two rode together
Terribly fearsome birds of a feather

They were the terror of the highway
As such, they couldn’t always stay

Childbirth took them off the road
The two moved into a family mode

Lou became a part-time file clerk
Zeke at a repair shop went to work

Occasionally, they will ride a bit more
But things are not as they were before

Old Zeke hobbles a lot these days
It’s two hundred pounds Lou weighs
