Ode to the Scab

Well, it’s not the prettiest subject in the world, but
someone’s got to deal with it. They can be big and nasty and take on the consistency of beef jerky. And as any mountain
biker knows, they are part of the sport. And so, why not pen an article about the scab? Why not indeed. You might find
this brief , but lyrical treatise to the scab offensive. You might find it enlightening. Either way, you are not likely
to think the same about scabs ever again.
