They Call Me Wheelie Willie
I can’t afford a tire. But who needs one. I am all over with this baby.
I pop a wheelie and I’m gone. The hood knows this homey. They call me Wheelie Willie.
And get out of my way, because when I’m coming through, if you sass me, I’ll just clip you with the two front tire forks.
I’ll hurt you bad. I’ll mess you up. One time I cut this guy’s thigh, and he went down, and I reared back up a second time and I sliced his face. He was lucky I didn’t hit his eye. Nobody messes with me now. Nobody.
Couple of my boys took their wheels off, but they just can’t do it like me. Nobody can do it like me.
You need something delivered fast? I am it. No questions asked. Better than Fed Ex. I am your man.
I am your man.
the unicycle is my favorite ride
sometimes it bumps, and then it glides
this banana bike I rode downtown
forgot my chain, here’s what I found.
great little ditty…
unfortunately true for me, where I bicycled some place and had to walk home.
man — that stinks. I hate that people steal.
somebody stole something?
I just walked home…. mom said if I didn’t have my head attached I would have left it somewhere, too.
besides my heart? Yep had a few losses that way, but never on my bikes. I watch them too closely.
yep, we’ve all lost our hearts along the way…
I had a difficult enough time riding two wheels.
Man; you are the man….! 😉
just call me Wheelie Willie
I thought it was Wee Willie! My bad!
No. And it’s not Wee-Wee Willie either.
Better be careful ’cause Wheelie Willie don’t like no one messing with his good name.
I certainly wouldn’t go messing with Wheelie Willie – I enjoyed your take on the picture and loved the characters voice.
There are so many reasons why I love this one. It’s simplicity, it’s clipped first person narrative, the pacing, the fact that this is a person trying to do a hard sell for his services. It renders the photo as an image of how the speaker sees himself, and may or may not be how he is in real life. I also like the fact that Wheelie Willie (LOVE that moniker, by the way) considers his one-wheeled bike as a weapon as well as a mode of transportation. That is one resourceful young man!!
Wow, what a great critique, analysis, and thoughtful feedback. Almost as long as the piece itself.
BTW – Wheelie Willie says thanks for calling him a resourceful young man. He says that he thinks you are the bomb- and asked me to ask you if you need something delivered. He’d like to bring it to you. He’s laughing now. Not sure what this means…
So damnable cute.
me or willie?
hehehehe…. I set it up and you played it back so well. Thanks
Ahhh Wheelie Willie better watch out. His ego matches his mouth and that could get him into trouble. Won’t take but a walking stick shoved through the rear wheel and it will be up, up, up, and down and out for da count 😉
So well written! The bravado and arrogance done perfectly 😀
He is indeed the man! I promise never to cross Wheelie Willie.
