What Makes You Think You Will Like It?

How long have you been riding your motorcycle?
'Many years now.
Why? '
Will you teach me how to ride it?

'Do you have the desire to learn? '
I don't know yet.
'What makes you think you will like it? '
You make it look as if I will.

'Suppose I told you it took me years to like,
What it is you see me do? '
YEARS?
Are you kidding?

'I wish it was a joke.
I had to learn to like it.
But...
I wanted to.
Because I had the desire.'

Oh no!
I don't have that kind of time,
To learn to do what somebody else likes?
You think I can learn to ride without desire?
'Do you think I would have the patience,
To teach somebody without it? '
