[My late mother has incessantly advised us not to ride a motor bike as bad experiences about bike accidents were aplenty even then. Well, yesterday afternoon–I experienced my first motorcycle piggy-back ride with GARY as the BIKE’s pilot (as I do not know how to drive it) yesterday afternoon just to do an errand for my youngest daughter ALEE. I got so excited as ALEE needed some packaging stuff for her purported NEW BUSINESS; and the thought of enhancing her entrepreneurial proclivity egged me to do the RIDE. I sort of told myself that Shayna & Cheska working on their dance studio and specialty-apparel business, Tonton’s partnering in a RESTO business and ALEE’s bag/pouch trading business…well, I and Dang will be among a company of capable, clever, and cheery YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS! Incidentally, the BIKE RIDE with GARY was ZESTFUL and WILD. Left and right photos are those of ALEE; middle photo shows myself doing a piggy-back ride on GARY’s BIKE.]
Just this morning I received a text,
From a pretty banker who’s from EAST-WEST1;
It’s about my youngest daughter’s2 account,
She said my ALEE withdrew a big amount3.
And so I got swayed to call her fast,
If that’s the case, ALEE’s credit won’t surely last;
But I was given a credible explanation,
Her action was some kind of entrepreneurial resolution!
ALEE said that she’s opening a business,
And she’ll be selling some specialty pouches;
She’ll do her business venture ON LINE,
She boasted that her goods are one of a kind!
I got a bit animated and excited,
This ON LINE business has really sprouted;
And as the trend which has now been in VOGUE,
They use computers and cellphones as CATALOGUE!
As I was out of office for an engagement,
ALEE dropped by and made proud her comment;
That she has quickly closed some deals,
My staff and lawyers burst out some peals!
And as I returned to my office at around 4 PM,
I was told ALEE needed some packaging which should be the KEM4;
ALEE specified that it must be paper-based,
As she’ll adorn it and make it elegantly-laced.
As the excitement within me got ENHANCED,
I had to rush to Farmers’ Market5 near EDSA;
But as I had to keep an appointment at 5 PM,
I had to do the PURCHASE in a quick GLEAM6!
As FARMERS’ MARKET7 was surely congested,
As it happens always every Valentine’s EVE;
I asked our office assistant GARY,
Who drives a motorcycle, as he doesn’t TARRY!
And so I experienced my FIRST MOTORCYCLE PIGGY-BACK RIDE,
And GARY’s BIKE did in fact GLIDE and SLIDE;
I even got the chills when a MOTORCYCLED TRAFFIC ENFORCER8,
Almost bumped our BIKE as though a STALKER!
And I was able to buy the mid-sized PAPER BAGS,
To insure that ALEE would not have some order-lags;
And it would really be EXHILARATING,
If ALEE’s business would really do a KILLING9.
But that MOTORCYCLE RIDE with GARY,
As in fact despite the traffic jam, the delay was NARY;
We drove outbound in a FLASH,
And we arrived on time at the office in a DASH!
But this will be my FIRST and LAST BIKE RIDE,
Just to make ALEE’s business to start, SO ALIVE;
Though it’s been said that when you ride a BIKE,
You’d often collide against a DIKE or get a ticket for a RIKE10!!!!
