Get on your bike, get pedalling
Get cycling quick today
For fitness and much more beside
We’re told will line your way
When you stride cross the saddle and
Head out your two wheels
So first think bike when on a trip
To wear off all those meals
And burn a few spare calories
Tone up and get healthy
And then enjoy the added charm
Of saving some money!
For bar the cost of bike and hat
There’s not much else to spend
For with no fuel costs breaking you
Your bike can be your friend!

I’ve often sat and wondered
What the hook is with DIY
What fascinates those people
Who love nails and wood, 3 ply
Those who relish time in home stores
Those whose sheds become their lair
And why it is they’re obsessional
About their drills and other fayre.
And then there are the gardeners
What keeps their interest keen?
Their daily dedication
In keeping grass and fingers green.
What captivates, enthrals them?
What drives them to be best?
And why is it I ponder,
They don’t stop and have a rest?
Then the ornithologists remain a riddle
Along with those who fish and who train spot.
Or those who play a round of golf –
What maintains their interest hot?
But those pursuing dangerous endeavours
Are the ones that fox me most
Be it skydiving from an aeroplane
Or bungee jumping off a post!
But in essence on reflection,
In all these different pursuits
There’s one little gem that links us
That unites us all, to boot
For the fact that we’re all different
And like such variety
Puts a spectral rainbow in the sky
That celebrates our diversity.
