THE MASTER'S BICYCLE

A second hand bicycle
was all the master could afford,
when he came to teach
in our country school.
After years of cycling
the four miles in the rain,
it disjointed.
The saddle sat loosely,
padded with papers and rags
during lunch hour the boys
loved to pull it apart,
leaving the saddle at an angle
that made a pyramid
on the well-worn seat.,
it was all they could do
to get back at him, as he
lashed their growing hands
with the sally rod.
