Of Voices & Violins: More Godawful Poetry

28 Aug

It ain’t over until it’s over, dahlings. Until then, suck it up and deal with the rotten verse.  Orange Sadistic Jammies is on a rrrrrrrrroll!  :mrgreen:

*******

Vivaldi is straining

To tell us there are four seasons

Above the thunder of the Indian third,

And the boom of drums

And tramping feet

And idol-cart squeaky wheels;

A minority Italian

In a roaring Indian nation

Drowned out,

Marooned,

Amid decibel peaks,

While a clay elephant head

Smirks at his isolation

And trumpets noiselessly

To crown the din.

    Aunty G: I’m more irreverent than irrelevant. 😉 But never mind that. Thanks for the trivia. Had no clue G-Chaturthi was a birthday. But then again, the din I’ve described above doesn’t permit any thinking.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
