Skateboarding

Sidewalks and skate parks; Old swimming pools drained. Kickflips and split lips; young ankles sprained. Aerials and Varials and being called a punk. Tail taps and grip tape; and tricks that take *****. Exercise that is ramped up; balance in a curve. Backflips and Bearings now don't loose your nerve! Ollies and wallplants it's no passing fad. acid drops and nosestalls Not just boys being bad! Ramps under carports and falling and pain. Daring and doing tricks again and again Inclines; expression and Five Oh grinds Nollies and ledges and friendship that Binds. Go away Mr. Policemen: Just let us be. Skateboarding is not a crime! So let us Skate free!
