A fond getaway
Where the A Major has never sounded better -
    Beethoven’s Seventh, of course 
    with Szell, on reel –
The basement is musty, smoky and bachelor dirty
        hosting two teachers on a Friday night
They sip
Light up
Cut slivers of cheddar
Then, playing conductor, perform horrendous     
      gyrations, herky-jerky like the first movement
They sip
And on
Till the pitcher is gone
Then another pitcher (forget the olives)
On and on
Half the nine symphonies are played
One or the other is drunk
The cat – Figaro – has been curled up on an arm chair
The din is ear-splitting!
At last Figaro rises
Pads slowly upstairs

    I guess this to be a write from your collated 'records' Daver; I wonder which is the 'major' Piece to this melodic reminisce? ( I guess) its Old figaro as he streches and saunters away..? Hope you are well..Joe..)

    This poem was so entertaining and I could just visualize the scene by your descriptive words. I loved "bachelor dirty" so much fun to read Dave. Mahalo

    oh my, this one is quite the funny scene, DAver. I love when you write like this with such candor about musicians, even those classic playing ones!!!
