A key in the neck, a hole in the brain, A twist of the wrist will turn the inane into a vital fighter. A grip of plasti-flesh. The palm is backed with weatherproof black and brown fur mesh. Headlights focus, belly rumbles. Throat exhaust. Muscles tumble over shoulders. Knuckles spin. Teeth are lit into a grin. Goggles down, saddle mounted, turn the key. Attack the mountain.
