A hobby that is

More frightening than it is exhilerating
Less accessible than it is possible,
Less as much fun than it is taxing,
Less as stimulating than it is arduous,
Less as safe than it is popular,
More risk, less reward,
Little speed, and much concern,
More expensive, but all the same,
Boring, or maybe even mundane,
What is there to do?
But in the sky so blue,
Stalls, landings and a sort of practice maneuver,
Maybe we could fly, far away to Vancouver,
Maybe then we would find why people fly,
Whizzing, zooming, may they yell 'bye'!
