Gumby, I think of Nero watching the flames from a blacony while singing a song about the destruction of Troy.

We hear the tune you play
an old song

Great imagery!

plucked with fingers
no calluses..

Just enough of a bite!

Maybe that's why
you can't hold
a true note.

Compact and thourougly enjoyed. Laurie

Thankyou Laurie, it's an old one that I dug up and blew the dust off of. :)

It is such a pleasure to read this little gem again. The hint of things to come, possibly sooner than we anticipate, still makes my hackles rise. Good old Revelations. A delicious and well deserved jab at one who should be wearing a bullseye to make these things easier.:wink: I doubt I will ever cease to appreciate your boundless wit, Cindy, please keep it coming.
