Inspired by my Geography Teacher in Grade 11 at Welland High
Big Whh-ee-l, Big Whh-ee-l, I heard the geography teacher say;
You think you’re a big wheel; you will be humbled some day.
A flash back of high school hit me hard
As a man carrying a bicycle tire walked into his yard.
Big wheels are not the ultimate; it’s the little cogs that keep the time;
The integrate assembly of a watch, keep the seconds in rhythm and rhyme.
The body is very important; but each tiny little part.
To keep the big wheel turning; fly wheels need to start.
The integrated circuit is a marvellous thing to see
To keep a big wheel humble; microscopic for you and me
Big Wheel; Big W h e e l; I heard the teacher say.
It’s all imagination that keeps the active-mind at play.
