Memorial Dedication Poem
By Bingo: (DC Eagles MC)
Don’t visit my grave and grieve for me –
For I won’t really be there!
I’ll be with a lot of brothers and friends
And I’ll tell you now – just where:
We’re all together up in Door County –
Where many bikers that die all go –
And we meet again – at the “Memorial Walk”
There are some there I am sure you know!
So come on up with some friends
And visit – Drink a toast or two.
We’re going to be here for a very long time –
Because we will be waiting here – for you.
I hope you’ve got many more years to go –
And many more miles to ride!
But when your time comes – I hope –
You’ll join us bikers here – when you’ve died.
-Sad News Everyone –
-Bingo Passed Away-
Although he already has a stone at the Memorial, we can now fill in the “?” with 2015.
RIP Bingo – 1924 to 2015
Here is another poem about the Motorcycle Memorial by Bingo
I have lived a good life – to a ripe old age –
Good Brothers – in “My Book”- on every “page”!
But there’s one thing I’d like there to be –
That’s a brick in the Memorial Walk for me.
It’s a Memorial for bikers in “Harley Heaven”
In Door County off Highway 57.
The money is in my will for that to be –
So someday go look – and remember me.
