The Monster Mash

<                              dancing to the hit song monster mash
                                frankenstein and werewolf got real smashed
                                took the witches culdeen
                                and boiled up mummys spleen
                                Quasimodo joined in on the bash

                                witches brew of brains spleens gizzards hearts
                                illuminates party from it's start
                                Dracula and zombies
                                lurking for free bodies
                                poor old frankie's wife just fell apart 

                               the bewitching dance came to its end
                               when bats flew in frenzy around den 
                               on this all hallows eve
                               trickery was up sleeve
                               sent my 3 black cats in to defend

Zebra Star

There once was a zebra from China.
Who liked to sing songs in D minor.
    His voice was the rage
    When they put him on stage.
He rode out of town a headliner!

For Deborah Guzzi's Limerick II Contest

The Trouser Snake

There once was a king cobra called Lance,
Who heard music and went in a trance.
People thought he was asleep,
As his thoughts were so deep.
Then he reared up and lunged for their pants.

Jack Horne for Dr Ram's Music and Meditation

there once was

there once was...

there once was a rooster from Nantucket
with vocal stylin's, it only could cluck it
it cocked and it crowed
strutin' loud 'round abode
'til the farmer's wife's axe did awestruck it

The Music In Me

I have a peaceful easy feeling
As I sit and write this poem
Comprising 5 old songs
Which remind me of my home

They show me the importance
They teach me with such grace
To get up every morning 
With a smile on your face

My youth was filled with ballads
Verses I could trust
And we all know what memories bring...
They bring dia-monds and rust

Songs taught me that my friends were
The wind beneath my wings
To treasure and embrace  them
To value what life brings

There's a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
For me, 'bout sums it up
The hope one feels within

Sometimes a simple sound
Or smell can be so strong
It carries me back light years
To one specific song

And in that song I bask
I know  what each line means
Transcended to the past
Dressed in my tie-dyed jeans.

Eagles            – Peaceful Easy Feeling
Carol King    -  Beautiful
Joan Baez      - Diamonds and Rust
Bette Midler  - Wind Beneath My Wings
Leonard Cohen - Anthemn

Diasbled Musician

There was a disabled musician
Who stiffly played every audition.
Now recording with care,
Strumming from his armchair,
On youtube he’ll post each composition.

When Elvis sang he rocked and he rolled.  
His fans jumped up and shimmied, I'm told. 
The folks in Tupelo 
got all shook up below, 
like devils and demons got a hold.

Sing Sing Singer

I once knew a songster from Skokie
Who was thrown in the Sing Sing pokey
They claimed he was off key
And his voice was croaky
So he killed them at karaoke!

Sing Out

To sing out the Star Spangled Banner
In the most appropriate manner
You must have four
To sound out more
And highlight that new fangled scanner

Eine kleine Nachtmusic or a little serenade

Is this Mozart's musical score
Or sonata of sounds I abhor?
I have a good ear
But I'd rather not hear
The loud notes composed when you snore

Gregorian Chant Rap

Mozart composed the Jazz of his day,
Bach could Rock in the same way,
Music is music,
Melodies mimic,
Young tunes turn classical fogies’ heads gray.

aHa: a poetic noetic instantiation in three acts

rushing inference, imminent insight suddenly its clear, a gut feeling swooning, reeling, cross-connected hemi-sphere syncopated, reverberated, totally aware open bi-ways, ahh blue-sky days, making up my mind synapses shiver, axons quiver, dendrites deliver 'lectrik-neurons fire suddenly in time aha! aha! oh gawd I see, I ran around 'n cried a fool I've been, all along its there, right in front of me with a grin 'n a nod 'n twinkly-looking 'round raised my arms 'n slapped my thighs 'n made a ruckus sound -- donned my hat 'n set it skewed upon my big bright head set off to town in an uplifted mood while whistling a sweet sound forgot what I had found # there's a hole in my head where the wounds of reason seep all words are dead inside my head what's left is dark 'n deep @ I'll always live and always die on the event horizon of my mind's eye where the flash of neuronal fires flower into sudden epiphany -- <-- youtube anim of this piece

Musical Mojo

I once knew a fiddler named jo jo
He chose to live life as a hobo
He traveled with freight
Through city and state
sustained by that musical mojo

Blonde Ambition

I once had a dream of a girl that sang pop
She was only 16 dressed like a slut, so we called her prosti-tot
She went crazy and spiraled down,
Did a music video with a depressing clown
And as for the singer, Thank God!  her career finally stopped

David Bowie

This idol, this man holds a place in my heart. 

He speaks of Ziggy Star Dust and Major Tom, so I don't know were to start. 

He played as a king of a goblin land. 

Watching and listening to him makes me crumble like sand. 

David Bowie s melodies and performances are genuinely an art.

A young man named Gordon did frown
As in lyrics he started to drown
Lightfoot was his surname
Not one lyric the same
And the best that I heard was Sundown

Vinyl Records

Vinyl records are still around. 
They carry some amazing sound. 
If you are able, 
get yourself a turntable. 
The music you hear will astound.

My Girl and I

My desire is too stroke her neck
In my mind I shall not fret
To pull her heart strings
To see what tune she so brings
Oh my fingers will trek

Against my waist she'll be so close
Her touch will excite me the most
As she brushes against me
High pitched I can be
Bodies together so in compose

As we play our audience roars
With me she continues to explore
Yes, she is my guitar
Making music we star
As we have done so many times before

The ghost of Galilee

Peaceful music upon the pomp mare                                                                           
Shaped like harp this deep God his band                                                                    
Playing hard strings of waves music lands                                                                        
In the light as discerning the air                                                                                   
Fearful man walking to master’s hand

Piano Magic

                magical ivories, lyrical keys,

        sing of my soul's fondest memories,

                       my heart shall dance

                           in blissful trance,

                vibrant rhythm in my reveries !

Frazzled Razzle

Has the dazzle gone out of your razzle,
Or your tassel been burnt to a frazzle,
You could twiddle on fiddle,
Or pop down to Lidl,
And bump into someone called Basil
