Bike Story: Recycled

Bike Story - Recycled

Before recycling, people

Buried or burnt things

In the garden.

I dug up a bike in nineteen seventy three.

Muddy frame,

Flat tyres,

Rusty chain,

A bell that worked – ding !

No saddle.

Cleaned it up,

Oiled the chain,

Polished the silver,

Found a saddle,

Borrowed wheels,

New inner tubes.

Recycled.
