The Great Escape

This is an unusual post, but i found Steve McQueen. He's hiding in a lavatory, somewhere in Bucharest. Perhaps he found what he was seeking...or maybe he just found what he needs.

Eddie Izzard tells the tale:

'On the day of the escape,
Steve McQueen has joined up.
The British have trilby hats,
overcoats, canoe, bit of a rabbit.

Steve's just there
in jeans and a T-shirt.
Disguised as an American man.
He romps out, jumps on a motorbike,
knocks a guy off.
Within minutes
he reaches Switzerland.

This is from Poland.
And if you don't know the geography,
it goes Poland, Czechoslovakia,
Holland, Venezuela, Africa, Beirut...
the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
and then Switzerland.

Remember, Jim Rockford
nicks an airplane in that film,
flies to Switzerland
and he gets about miles
away from it in an airplane.
Steve's on a fucking motorbike
and he gets there. Before him.
What's he got
on the fucking motorbike, jet wings?'
