Bicycle Thieves: the Filmerick

My class on “The City in Film” recently screened Vittorio De Sica’s classic BICYCLE THIEVES, and I was inspired to pen another “filmerick”:

BICYCLE THIEVES (Vittorio De Sica, 1948)
De Sica shoots Rome neo-real,
The poor have been dealt a raw deal.
         A bike is required
         Or Ricci gets fired:
All men must eventually steal.

So great, so sad.
