CHEEZE by Susan Mehr
Little boy, big voice, having fun, cheeky grin.
Stepping out, he chose, emerging, his first win.
He displays bravery and courage also discipline.
He is never flustered falling in a tale spin.
Adjustments, three wheels instead of two.
Redefining success he must do.
Proud he’s an Aussie Kangaroo.
Setting out to impress that’s his cue.
Focus to inspire and achieve.
Wearing emotions on his sleeve.
Winning his race to believe.
Spins his web in his own weave.
Rosie cheeks his face in a blush.
His hair matted, messy, unbrushed.
Not wanting to spend a lifetime hushed.
Anchored hence lingers through life unrushed.
Breaking every rule
To inspire, his fuel.
Besides, he is nobody’s fool.
Obstacles. ‘Heem-Star*.’ Overrules!
Lets ride like the wind, he is the fast one.
Amidst the action, leaves nothing undone.
Legs peddling focus on what he can do,
out there to win, a real Aussie true-blue.
Helmet off centre, now it begins,
etched in his face a glorious grin.
A bowling ball set free crashing through duckpins.
in contrast he’s no timid country bumpkin.
People applaud, left and right.
Flying past them on his bike.
Good heavens what a sight.
Safety first for his plight.
Devoted people, giving their all.
Giving up their time, having a ball.
Captivated, he kept them enthralled.
For they’re the flower’s protective sepal, after all.
Pointing the camera, ready I aim.
He adopts a pose, fame is his game.
“Cheeze,” he shouts, sharp and slick.
I apply pressure, then a click. 🙂
