Ghost Rider

Clothes have become an encumbrance, for suddenly Summer's arrived.
This chap, here, has taken a bold stance and a way to cool off he's contrived.

He's waited for moonlight to clothe him in naught but its silvery light,
now he'll hop on his trusty old Harley and disappear into the night.

His skin will appear luminescent, so if people see him flashing by,
they'll suppose he's ghost or a ghoulie, not a streaker who's still a bit shy!

  2. Presumably in line 5 "flashing by" is a double-entendre?

  6. I have been tainted by Twilight and now every time I read "skin" and "luminescent" in the same sentence, I can't help but think about glittering vampires *sigh* It's shameful, I know.
