Battersea Cyclical Encounters

The Battersea Bridge access to Thames Path

Cute cyclist meets human at the narrow place

Back in the industrial age

The path was used for towing the barges

Wharves still bear the colonial names

Of the goods plundered all over the Empire

In today’s consumer’s kingdom leisure is the industry

Bikers, joggers and electric contraption riders

Race around wearing their strange distinctive space-suits
