Hostility's Dude

Harley McFarley they called him.
And did so with utmost respect...
For he was the king of the bikers...
and would have not one ounce of neglect.

Now Harley was scary to look on...
for even a blind man could tell...
that he was beyond ordinary...
a fact one could glean from his smell.

His form would fill out the doorway,
with girth that outdid the sublime...
he had hair just as wild as his laughter,
looked ratty and smudged up with grime.

His eyes could both twinkle or fire...
depending on which pressing mood...
Harley could be quite the charmer
or the king of hostility's dude.

Tattoos were a hallmark, for Harley...
he sported with hot Cajun pride,
displaying his artwork with passion
as he dressed in wife-beaters to ride.

And, of course, never seen without leather,
boots and chains all, in part, his appeal,
with patch of a huge skull and crossbones...
He was larger than life, made of steel.

With a voice that competed with thunder
that muted the loudest in crowd...
A hush would lull at his entrance...
An event that made old Harley proud.

Yep, Harley McFarley they called him,
a force both unleashed and unchecked...
For he was the king of the bikers...
A man no one dared disrespect.

Harley McFarley

His appearance narly

Yet he was handsome

Women fought over him

Men gave him respect

If they knew what was best

But even Harley was not immune

To a life fraught with doom

When his back had a crack

He left his Harley on the rack
