The Man With One Leg

a short poem I wrote on the way to work this morning:

He's amazing to see, the man with one leg;

He's older than me, though I don't know his age.

As I sit, stuck in traffic, he whizzes right by -

on his bicycle! His bicycle! And I

Am amazed and inspired by this man with one leg,

in his safety-green vest and grey hair.

He'll be at work before me, and on with his day,

while I'm waiting for cars to move, going nowhere.
