A Troubling Bike
A policeman called me in this morning, asking about how I had come by my bike. I told him I'd come across it just outside my gate. From the look on his face, I got the idea that he didn't believe me. In fact, I really had asked around to find out who it belonged to, but no one round here could help me out. I assumed that the owner had thrown it away so I fixed it up with some new bits of chrome and plastic, and started to use it. I'd certainly give it back to the rightful owner if he showed up, and that's the case I will put to the judge next Tuesday.
