the commercialization

came swiftly

what was

once

no oneís

business

but our own

has now

exploded

upon

the masses

millions

billions

of ill gotten

dollars

won

by a people

that have never

known

the road.

 

the commercialization

came loudly

trumpeted

across pages

of magazines

across video feeds

of news media

hungry

for a sampling

of our lifestyle

without

the nasty wind

and bugs

and shit

that will hit you

when you ride

now complete

destroying everything

good

along the way

leaving sheeple

enjoying

feeling

belonging

to something

they will never

know

or

understand.

 

the commercialization

bastardized

castrated

enabled by trailers

motor homes

efficient noise

reducing

standards

eunuchs

passing

laws

all

ignorant

of the real

beauty

inside

the heart

of the road

has now become

the reason

to ride.

 

we know

a money machine

cannot be silenced

as easily

as passing

laws

to eliminate our

sound

 

we know

the road

beckons

to those

worthy

of itís call

 

there is

no need

for

fancy

trinkets

 

just money

for fuel

 

and once

in a while

 

a repair

along the way.
