Consider It Payback
(The Toy Run)
The Ironhorse Writer
11/07/2003

He was used to goin’ toe to toe
Could ‘take one’ on the chin
But facing mortality
Was one bitch of reality
For one not prone to give in

His wife sat by the hospital bed
Smiled as he said with a frown
‘I should be ridin’
Not here hidin’
Wearin’ leathers, not this gown’

She reached for him, he met her hand
Told her, through a cautious laugh
‘Ya think it’s too late?
Am I tempting fate?
Expecting prayers on my behalf?’

A knock of formality upon the door
hen entered a young MD
‘What now Doc?
More bloodwork and talk?
How ‘bout a Whiskey IV?’

The Doctor stared at the Biker
Placed a bag upon the bed
‘It’s never too late
Nor tempting fate
Consider it payback instead’

‘Ya call that bedside manner Doc?
I’m about to blow a fuse
I’ll give ya a pass
On kickin’ your ass
Be careful of the words you choose’

‘Good enough’, said the Doctor
Handing the bag to the wife
‘You’ll find a picture in there
Attached to a Teddy Bear
Pieces of a new lease on life’

‘Fifteen years ago, in the lobby downstairs
A mother and son sat and stared
For Bikers, one by one
On an Annual Toy Run
Showed, once again, they cared’

‘The gifts, the carols, goodwill hugs
Every child received a toy
But nothing could compare
To a brand new Teddy Bear
And the Biker who gave it to that boy’

‘The lobby had emptied, the run moved on
Minus one Biker who stayed
They ate and talked
Laughed and walked
Went back to his room and played’

‘His mom grabbed her camera, took a shot
A special moment shared
About those pieces of a new lease on life
They’re within the bag I’ve handed your wife
Consider it payback, for one who cared’
