First Wheels!


Sometimes life is strange! Our neighbour’s sixteen year-old son hero-worships an actor who died sixteen years before he was born – Steve McQueen. The same lad has just taken delivery of a new moped…

Our neighbour’s son has a moped,
He’s recently turned sixteen,
He rides along the highway,
Thinks he’s Steve McQueen!

His favourite film is The Great Escape,
He’s got the poster too.
On his way to college,
He tries to jump the queue!

He nips along the country lanes,
28 mph you see,
Before he appears around the corner,
All you hear is ‘wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!’
