Scooter Tramps

Every night, hard core
bikers and ‘wanna bee’
warriors hold court
in the back of the bar.

They run their mouths
like they rev their bikes
as they rule the pool table. 

It’s all talk; about bikes,
pickup trucks, easy girls
and new tattoos, while
they guzzle down beer
with shots of booze,
and share their adventures
of parties,  bike runs
  and brawls.

Past,
         present,
                        and future.

And they’re all in uniform dress:
black leather jackets
or cut-off denim vests,
with stylish accessories;
primary chains,
hunting knives,
and leather wallets
chained to their belts.

They live for their big V-Twin
Harley Davidsons,
and believe in an American Dream,

the freedom of the road,
the freedom to be wild 
and the freedom to be left
             alone.

It’s an easy rider existence,
            but some are shackled
                          to the lifestyle.
