When all your bike skills go on climate strike...

 Here’s a little rap about a big spill
I got a new bike cuz I like downhill
I had my mom drive me to the top of the mountain
She kicked me out and said “Dinner’s at 7!”
She sped away in a cloud of dust
There all alone, no one to trust
I buckled my helmet and applied the gloves
Time to die, doing what I loved

Things were going smooth in the beginning
Dodging trees, hopping roots, just straight up winning!
Right around the corner was a big huge kicker
I knew I could do it, I ain’t no quitter!
I gave a few pedals for good measure
I launched to the moon, it was such a pleasure
Half way through I knew something was wrong
My nose was low and I was sending it long

A million thoughts running through my head
Coming to terms terms that I gonna be dead
I saw my whole life flash before my eyes
This was it, this was the end,
I didn’t even get to say my goodbyes

I came down hard and went over the bars
I flew through the air like a throwing star
I tumbled, l flailed, I busted up my knee
What happened next? My bike landed on me
I laid in the dirt and opened my eyes
Wait , what’s this? I guess I’m alive!
With a groan and a pop, I got to my feet
I brushed off the dust and examined my steed
The wheel was bent and the bars were twisted
But I still had to get home unassisted.

I managed to get home, expecting sympathy
All I got was my mom screaming at me
“That sport’s so dangerous, you’re gonna get killed!
You’re late for dinner and you food is chilled!”
It’s gonna take some time for these wounds to heal
But the worst part of all: I need a new front wheel

 As disastrous as all those fails are, when I saw that massive backhoe in the last clip, I feared the worst. Just felt like he'd find his way over to it.
