    Our friend Pinno, a bit of a bard
    To write a poem, he tried very hard

    He started a thread, to show what he could do
    But rhythm and metre, he hasn't a clue

    So come on lads, give us a verse
    Whatever you post, you can't do any worse.

    Bollocks!
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • An ode to Sportives

    I pedaled lonely in a crowd
    The cadence high o'er vales and hills
    When all at once I saw a feed station
    A host of old'en mamils
    Beside the cake, beneath the trees
    Fluttering and draughting in the breeze

    Who found a dead pross in a cave
    He said thats disgusting, she only needs dusting
    But think of the money I'll save.

    There was an old man called Pinno
    Who crushed lots cans made of tinno
    He's a bit of a t**t
    But we don't mind that
    If we've drunk boat loads of ginno.

    I was quite pleased with it actually :)

    I just hope you are better with numbers than letters.

    Polish Christmas

    Muddy carp swimming in my tub
    It's been 3 days I need a bath
    Go to sleep boney fish
    Stop moving you're really annoying me
    I'm going to kill you

    Ode to the green stuff

    Oh nose, my only nose
    The volume it produces
    God only knows

    Could I, would I
    Pedal and snort
    leaving trails of green,
    On tarmac and verge
    with mud it will merge
    dripping off the machine
    a slippery trap
    for the guy off the back.

    A tissue, a tissue
    My Haribo for a tissue...

    A cycling haiku

    My legs are a blur
    Through the gears, then I slip and
    Crush balls on crossbar

    TLW

    To him we must respect
    (Lesser men take note)
    For there is a man who lives
    Alongside the wood and the river
    In deepest darkest Shropshire
    Along with the wife, 2 kids and his liver
    For this man has pedalled miles
    In weathers to make one shiver
    Fuelled exclusively with ale
    Not by pint or yard but by pail
    Not a ditch has gone un-frequented
    Not a pub has remained untainted
    (No lamp-post or bush unchristened)
    So it is this man we must look up to
    To cycle inebriated yet straight
    Is a trick us mortals can't berate
    On his top tube is this
    which makes him hard to miss:

    Candy
    Is dandy
    But liquor
    Is quicker.

    This is excellent work.

    If it is nice, ride a bike
    when too windy, fly a kite
    If you're a geek, there's always zwift
    for a the digitally proficient and swift
    but never, never, never, never
    be tempted to become a crudder
