Okay, I confess
I’m a lying, cheating bi**h
In my poems Unconsummated Guitar
And Take Me Back, Please?
I’d leave ukulele never more
I love Janis Joplin
Will never have a voice like hers
But I’m haunted by her playing the
I wanna do it too!
I wanna look in my mirror and sing
Me and Bobby McGee
I do it with ukulele
But you know
Even though I’m old
(And maybe that’s the problem)
I can still have some dreams
So guess what I did?
Went on Ebay
Well, no, so EXPENSIVE!
Went to Amazon
Hmmm, maybe I should reconsider this move?
Nah! Life is short
So it’s off to craigslist.com
Hoping that any day now
I’ll be looking in the mirror
And seeing not an ol’ silver-haired woman
But a rip-roaring Blues singer
Great writing, BTW, Kris Kristofferson
I could just hear me!
