Rough Terrain

 

He cycled to the Gates of Hell—
But, past that point, you have to hike.
The numbers of the poor dead swell.
He cycled to the Gates of Hell.
Necessity you can’t dispel.
He had to set aside his bike.
He cycled to the Gates of Hell.
But, past that point, you have to hike.

 

—Tom Riley
