When biking in the city,
On the brand-new bikes for rent,
Bikers should procure a helmet
So their skulls won’t get a dent.
Thus, the city gave out freebies
In some lower-income ‘hoods,
But the people who reside there
Didn’t show up for the goods.
A reporter checked the scene out
And she interviewed some folks
With their feet up on the pedals,
Resting up against the spokes.
Though they lived in places posher,
Paying private schools’ high fees,
They were there to score a helmet,
As entitled as you please.
Seems that life’s not quite in balance
When the haves keep getting more,
With the have-nots sinking lower –
Doesn’t anyone keep score?
