The car radio drizzles out some slow music.
The reception's not great around here,
too many high rise and deep lows.
Luckily I know this tune
so I fill in some dead air.
I found the song on YouTube.
Turns out I got the lyrics wrong
and the band's name.
Words tend to drop down
a list of forgotten things
that's getting longer every day.
I whistle a deaf tune
only my humming brain
