Death Of A Daredevil
*Dedicated to Evel Knievel*
So many jumps
Every bone in your body
I watched when you
jumped The Canyon
and was on the edge
of my seat
Some of your stunts
I could hardly
My little brother wanted
When I landed
my first and only
I felt the danger
to be too true

I was surprized to see he was in the guiness book of records for the most bones broken in one's body. What a name he has! Bigger then life, a action figure, and even mself, I felt like Evel Knivel, when ever I did a jump, with my bicycle, over a cardboard box.

Just curious, what kind of bicycle?
Thank you very much for really reading my poem. Be careful.

Well let's see? It was in 1958, a big fat tire, 36'' one speed, that I painted blue and put all kinds of decals on it. A "Swinn" I believe? I took a jump over a box and the front wheel came off. Slam the asphalt with the front forks, went over the handle bars,and chip my front tooth. Had a big fat swollen bloody lip to go with the broken tooth. I was Evil knievel! I paid the price and lived with that broken tooth as a reminder till I got it fix in the Army, in Germany 1968. You know, I still jump and go fast, only now it has two wheels and a motor 400cc. I'm still Evil! Burrrp!
