Hostility's Dude

Updated on March 20, 2011

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

      star, this is a funny little piece...written about a guy I once knew that was, at one time a biker, but had to retire his bike for a back injury. I pretty much wrote this about him...a scary dude to behold, indeed, but a marshmallow in disguise! lol...a fun write! Hugs!
