The Band Tunes Up

Updated on May 5, 2010

The Band Tunes Up

Rumble roar, the great bass drum;

Tinkle-tink of bells, a shimmer of flutes; throaty clarinets.

Glare of trumpets now joined by seductive voice of saxophone.

Then all together, bits and parts

of exercises, scales and tunes.

All play at once, but not together!

And then, oh lawdy, and then

They put them in ...the gym!

Bounce and echo off concrete walls--a melange of unwedded sounds!

This is not for audience ears!

The text below is informational in nature only, and 
will reappear in many of my pieces, and can be ignored.
This is extra 'content' added at the end to fill space 
for no better reason than that "Hub Pages" wants to 
take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long 
their compositions should be.  I have numerous poems
 that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill 
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.
