The Wheel


It started right here, we didn’t think it was real
In 6400 BC man invented the wheel.
In 1839 the bicycle arrived
Experimental two-wheeled vehicles,
To be powered by human legs.
It had two wheels,
One at the back and one at the front
Then the French and the English
Built a bicycle just like this one
In 1493 that Leonardo De Vinci designed.
The bike had now arrived,
It was the only way to travel
Now there was Henry Ford
Who was working for Edison Illuminating Company,
When Ford saw the light.
So instead of a bicycle he built a car.
He called it the model A. Ford,
Then he added a T. which became the famous
Model T. Ford nicknamed the flivver.
850 Dollars to buy
So with the invention of the wheel,
The bike and the car,
Came the opportunity to travel afar.
