If Mona Lisa Had A Bicycle!
The Mona Lisa is just a picture without a bike at her side.
How much prettier would she be if she had a bike to ride?
Mona Lisa was painted with such a beguiling smile.
Give Mona Lisa a bike; she’ll smile a smile as wide as a mile!
The Mona Lisa is a fixture more than Whistler’s mother.
The Mona Lisa is a pretty picture like so many others.
She has that Mona Lisa look with that Mona Lisa smile.
But- the Mona Lisa riding a bike would be even more worthwhile.
Many artists have taken the brush and painted a pretty girl.
Many took a brush and gave it a curl, and swirl, and a twirl.
It started eons ago on the caveman’s walls.
Without being rude let me exude, what puts a tent in my overalls.
She’s the picture of elegance of course.
She flows and seems to use no force.
She has “that” look. She has “that” dress.
She has class and knows finesse!
She’s right at home with work and play.
She always knows the words to say.
She fits right in with any occasion.
She’s superior with tact and persuasion.
She has so many assets and attributes.
But how do I describe and define her absolutes?
I could take inventory again and again.
And yes, how does one truly begin?
Some might go on about her flowing hair.
Some might prefer to dwell on her derriere.
It may have won some prestigious award.
She has so many assets and many I disregard.
She’s humble and has such a lovely smile.
She has those ways to charm and beguile.
Dents and flaws seem to be nonexistent.
She has an aura. She has a beautiful scent.
The Mona Lisa is just another picture.
Without a bicycle, she’s a museum fixture.
Mona Lisa what is the secret that you hide?
Did Leonardo ask you to go for a bicycle ride?
The colors are nice and it’s painted by a master.
But God gave the Mona Lisa a bike and made her faster!
God gave Mona Lisa life and wheels with wings.
Her instrument is the bicycle. She plays. It sings!
I see my love riding fast and smooth, with riders all around.
Her torso never moves each time her pedal comes down.
She takes a pull at the front and then she moves to the side.
Only the smoothest moves are made when she’s on a bicycle ride.
She’s focused on the task at hand as anyone can see.
She moves with such great ease like a master of Tai Chi.
This mobile work of art blends into every situation.
Her smooth and cohesive riding style is worthy of emulation.
She’s fluid. She has no resistance to stress.
It’s a dynamic viscosity that she doth possess!
She doesn’t just go but she will quickly flow.
Now watch her pedal action and keep her tempo.
On the flats she’s maybe 90 rpms or more.
She considers this pleasure, it’s not a chore.
The pedals are rotating up and down.
That perfect circle is made as the crank is spinning around.
She holds her line, she’s steady, and she’s true.
She’s a grand lady and please don’t misconstrue.
But every attack you make she’ll try to negate.
She’ll pull her weight and then accelerate.
This is no fiction! She has no friction.
This cycling Mona Lisa is now my addiction.
God’s paint brush has now finished my picture.
She’s a part of my heart that is a permanent fixture.
Mona Lisa is so smooth. She’s sweet!
She’s a work of art on a crowded street.
I adore the style with which she rides.
She doesn’t merely ride, she glides!
I often wonder if she was really earth-born.
This Mona Lisa is a rose without a thorn!
It’s so funny that when she’s not on her bike,
I have no idea what she really looks like.
You keep that painting in the Louvre.
You see, it’s not 3-D and it just doesn’t move.
But this cycling Mona Lisa is the Mona Lisa I see.
She’s so smooth she’ll slow down and ride with me!
She’s moving music and mobile art.
She took my wheel and took my heart.
Did I say she's really good at changing "flats"?
