For Whom the Horn Honks

No biker is privileged,
Exempt from the law.
Each is a piece of the city,
A part of the main.
If a car runs a stop sign,
The city is the less.
As well as if a biker ran it.
As well as if a bike club of thine own
Or if a friend’s recumbent did.
Each traffic infraction infuriates me,
For I am involved in the city.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the horn honks,
It honks for thee.

Apologies to John Donne
