"I say, would you fancy accompanying me to the bike shop for some accessories?" asked the friendly chap. "Provided I have indeed correctly gendered you. Be on notice that I have designs upon your body and wish eventually to start a family."

All was going well, until the roundabout
  See the lorry fail to stop and nearly take them out.
They lost their appetite for flowers and birds and luncheon;
   What they really needed was a copper with a truncheon.
Mother reported the driver to Operation Crackdown
  Little brother forbidden to ride unless he wants a smackdown.
The sun will rise again, but happiness has gone away
   The innocent joy of cycling died, on a morn in May.
