Motorcycle Madam

Riffing on comments that the motorcycle program for the police is not good enough for an inexperienced madam.

They planned the course to touch on all

The skills a cop would need –

Swerve, stop, lean, look, balance, and fall,

Shoot without changing speed.

For years we have used this testing

To prove men’s skills solid,

But for woman are suggesting,

That the rules are squalid.

“That’s not enough time to adopt

The skills one needs to gain.”

“I think the police force has snapped.

Hope she enjoys her reign.”

“If she really wanted to ride,

She would have found a way.

Work options are not her tour guide.

She is not here to play.”

“That bike’s too big for any cop,

Unless matching ego.

Any female would surely drop

It down on their big toe.”

Yet like many cops before her

She will start things out slow,

And when two-wheeled police skills purr,

She will make the winds blow.

Estrogen does not hide poison –

It keeps ego in check –

So watch out, the game is on,

Guys and gals are neck in neck.
