Last night I went to race my bike
The start crowd was excited
I noticed that my tyre was soft.
And started to inflate it.
My tyre has protection
In the form of inner goo
That seals up any puncture
Before the air gets through
It always works so perfectly
I rarely need repair
A puncture when I'm riding
So I ride without a care
Last night my tyre had a twist
I had not quite noticed
Just before the pressure peaked
The whole thing just exploded
My face, my hair, my clothes, my bike
Were covered in white goo
It quickly set to plastic film
And whited out my glasses too.
And so I could not see that all
the people standing there
had turned to see what made the bang
They turned to me to stare
My moment of great glory
Had come to me at last
But I couldn't see a thing
And so the moment passed.
The centre of attention
Is what we love to be
But I hope that next time
I at least can see.
