Brother of the Wind & the Pen

Sorez the Scribe : Brother of the Wind & the Pen

May 1, 2020 | NYC Motorcyclist

For biker scribe Eddie ‘Sorez’ Pliska, poetry is as much about capturing his passion for the moto lifestyle and the raw energy of two-wheeled travel in prose, as it is about documenting determination in the face of the often-harsh struggles of life. He has had his fair share of both.

Here is May's exclusive piece, titled Essential ... a poem about the fine line between freedom and safety during these trying times. Whatever your beliefs, stay safe and healthy.

A Road Scribes of America co-founder, Sorez has graciously agreed to pen some inspiration for the NYC Motorcyclist community each month. You can read more about Sorez in a feature NYC Motorcyclist published in the spring of 2019.

Essential

by Sorez The Scribe

Did not see it coming
Never thought it would
Could be fined a thousand dollars
For riding down the road
Came upon a roadblock
Out there in the wind
What I had to say
They did not want to hear
Amongst themselves debating
Whispers of confiscation
Torn up constitution
Trample upon the flag
Came back with an ultimatum
One I would refuse
Either I gave an oath
To stay off the road
Or my bike they said I’d lose
I pulled out a piece of paper
That they did not want to read
It said I was essential
They told me I was free

---
“When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free.”
-- Tom Robbins
