When Sam was sixteen, he was the proud owner of a Triumph motor bike. It had been stored because it belonged to a solder. After the war was over, Sam bought it. Then Sam went to sea. His brother sold it. His friend wrote the poem regarding Sam and his motor bike.
SAMMY AND HIS MOTOR BIKE
You should see Sammy on his motor bike,
He’d be quicker on a hike.
Crash, bang, whallop around the bend;
Hey, Mr. Machanic, here’s a bike to mend.
If there’s a dreadful sight you wish to see,
Just visit Sammy in the cemetery.
This account is included in my posts called “Sam’s Story” which is a story of my husband’s childhood in England during WW 2. The first post was called “An Invitation to Sam’s Story.” “Aberystwyth of the Hinterland In the hills of Wales Gave safe harbor to an English lad Who lived to tell some tales.” https://onetahayes.com/2020/07/19/invitation-to-sams-story/
