Enter, stranger, but take heed
Of what awaits the sin of greed,
For those who take, but do not earn,
Must pay most dearly in their turn.
So if you seek beneath our floors
A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there.
J. K. Rowling ‘Harry Potter and the Sourcerer’s Stone’
Dear thieves and dodgy individuals,
We, at The Bikes College, would like to officially thank you for your generous input into the lives of all the common folk. We salute you for robbing the kids of their bikes. We take our hats in front of you for stealing from the town and city centres. We bow in half in front of you for getting your greasy fingers on the hard worked for wheels of the working folk. We salute you. For you keep us busy. For you create the void that we can fill. For you deliver the overwhelming tragedy and heartbreaking discoveries. We salute you.
It is you that keep us busy.
