The Birth of Wheels | Poem

Updated on November 9, 2013

The desire for movement

In pursuit of storage of energy

Powered by a quest

Brings about an education

But it beginning was a square


It use, was painful

It motion is highest

But in great difficulty

While it drive is fatal

And his strength is in a step


Research says pentagon

That was not even enough

Hum! What about nonagon

It still is not just enough

May be addition of more


Yes, the more the better

But still not the desired answer

Wisdom then speak

Circle of many radii

Oh! Just the needed dexterity


What else could we ask?

If not in the difference

Of the small and the big

Cycling with ease

Motion without a halt


Invention can now take its place

Natal to monocycle with balance

For the trained and competent

Elevated to motorcycle

It become the births of the wheels
