Don't Try A Track Stand On Three Margaritas

Updated on August 11, 2010

Don’t Try A Track Stand On Three Margaritas

I was riding my bike,

When along came along,

A beautiful bird,

That gave all the others, their song.

I didn’t want her to see,

The love my eyes would reveal.

After all, I am a macho-man,

And I like to keep it real.

So we rode and raced,

Into the morning rain.

We rode with the best,

And dropped the rest.

Finally it was just we two,

And what a team we made.

She appeared the perfect Goddess,

For which many men have prayed.

We rode hard into the rain,

As if riding for the Holy Grail.

As the rain flew up and in my face,

I thought, “My, what a pretty rooster-tail!”

We stopped by Margaritaville,

To ease our legs and mind.

It became a ride to Senoritaville,

As I met that Senorita of mine.

It was raining hard,

We were wet and very tired.

But after a Margarita,

I was getting a little wired.

I’m not sure if we ate at all,

It’s all such a blur,

And after another Margarita,

My words began to slur.

Was there salsa and chips,

My beautiful Senorita?

Or was there fire from burning lips,

And another Margarita?

We slipped away from Margaritaville

With very little swagger.

I was thinking of Senoritaville,

With quite an awful stagger.

We mounted our bikes,

And swerved on down the road.

But we came upon a traffic light,

Which caused me to write this ode.

I rotated my pedals to be,

At 3 and 9 o'clock.

And everything was fine,

Until I hit that rock.

I leaned to the left,

But then to the right,

I tried to stay erect,

With all my fuzzy might.

I was falling to the left,

But jerked toward my other side.

I teetered back enough,

And I was able to save my pride.

I was falling again, but then,

Just before I hit the ground.

I threw my opposite leg in the air,

But now I was turned around.

I found this trick profound!

So I tried this trick again,

And flipped myself around.

Now my Senorita was wearing quite a grin.

The ride was quite remarkable.

We were drowning all our pain,

With frozen Margaritas,

In a beautiful torrential rain.

We wobbled on our way.

The rain kept pouring hard,

We made it over the railroad tracks,

But I fell down in her yard.

She didn’t care a lick,

And we put our bikes up wet,

We had a bit more fun,

And then she lit a cigarette.

She said you’re cute,

But please, my Margaritaman,

Please don’t let this be,

Just another one night stand.

This was no one night stand,

She's my only Senorita.

And I’ll never try another track stand,

On three Margaritas.

      Yo Maita! I can't have a one night stand, a fruit stand, a banana stand, -not even a peanut stand. I can't drink Margaritas either. Too much fructose! What is a man to do!?

      You know what they say about drinking and operating heavy equipment...never go in the water until you wait about two hours as the drink will cause cramps which could interfere with love-making activities. It's just a complicated thing leads to another. Nice work..I think I was injured in the fall! LOL WB

      Another well done - combination of poetry and photos. I hope the little cardboard box man did not stay out in the rain for too long, he is best suited to a dry climate. :)

      ladyjane!!! Drinking makes up stupid. It's a drug. It's a sedative. Sometimes "Stupid" is what we need though. It could stand to be dumber at times. What a world.

      Yo Prasetio!!! You last "travel" hub was incredible! I'll go back and check that out a lot! God bless Prasetio!

      Yo 50!!! I figured you must have tipped the Hawg over a time or two. I did the Arty Johnson fall on my bicycle and my Yamaha 650. Every cyclist has that Arty fall. All club riders have their feet locked in too. A Yamaha 650 is rough to pick up- can't imagine trying to get a Harley off of myself. Yep- friends will ride off and leave you there - at least a while! The Cardboard Dude rocks!

      Mic, a track stand and a slow race on my Harley sound like one and the same, hard to do sober much less after tipping a few LOL, years back I tipped over like Arty Johnson on Laugh In, was a little tipsy and got my right leg caught under a 700 pound bike and couldn't get out from under it, after a good laugh and ribbing from the fellers I was riding with they finally broke down and helped me after first riding off to make me feel they weren't gonna help me.... ahhh good times and a good poem. I liked the card board dude as well and it is now on my screen saver in the rotation of my favorite pictures, 50

      akirchner!!! That rock ran out into the road! Never drink and drive! You can't hurt too many things out there on a bicycle but yourself.

      Polly!!! I thought of your write, my write as I went to your hub earlier. Great minds think alike. I think with the heat being so rough we've turned our thoughts to some rain to cool off. "What is with you and Micky and the rain!" Funny! You being happily married and me being crazy! I loved your hub about the rain, by the way! God bless!

      Thank you soumyasrajan! I have no senorita. Life is an illusion and so are senoritas. Thank you!

      Yo Coolmon! I loved your Etta James hub! My, my! the videos were superb! People say that occasionally about a "book". I think my life has been too interesting. I can't really "capture" the essence of it. There are a lot of chapters. Some might find them unbelievable and unglamorous. Thank you Dear!

      Now Poetvix, don't go to a Margaritaville too far away. We were about 7 miles away from home way back then. Don't drink too much. Don't drive and drink. Don't be taken advantage of. God bless!
