Track Name: Hay: nice feel...
The Horse whisperer
Fortune might shine on the young colt
Inept, and confronted by a half witted double cellist
he bolts the gate on Paliminoes
Many whispers seemed die cast to the flying filly
but mindful of parrot headed sirens
laser guided stud finders mapped out.
Its no walk of shame on woodpeckers lane
see the smoke must be fire- a piggy in the mire
but is the family business safe.
Track Name: Scramble munters with Sun Bae Choi, Jeff Henderson, John Bell and Chris O'Connor
Anderson wore the laurels, a sly tiddler dog, though not quite the mythical wolf. So: to usurp Ginger and Newcombe, observe the pack, but beware the goose and the half cut mannequin. Of the gander, it doth yet speak speak the truth and still the mannequin cuts a clean dash at 130000 revs. The mannequin may still yet be a factory ride but they say a goose is always worth a gander.
As for me:, I'll follow the wolf into the blue haze. Let machines dream of monza or Mt Wellington- wolves and devils don't care. After all, a rocking chair for a Bultaco would seem a fair trade.
