Muse alert….. Sorry – My Mistake

Doggerel Dave

Please ignore the obvious – this is me

As I try to produce some poetry….

What about him - a role model? Let's see....

When he has it done you can feel his glee:

Screaming Jay’s example guides what I do -

It’s effort not my muse which gets me through.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This is a serious attempt to meld music and poetry forming a synthesis of conjoining realities thus creating a unified cohesive whole with qualities which would include a fresh dimensional aspect………… yeh – I got that, but it’s terrible hard to get rid of though, the medication just ain’t working…..

        So that’s what I’ve been missing, while waiting for my muse. A fine example of a true poetry

          Not sure about that, Suresh - but I did my best and no one can ask for more .

          So your muse is exposed at last Dave!

            Nah, Andy – You haven’t given due weight to my carefully considered lines - Screaming Jay is an example, a mentor rather than a muse……
            So do tell – where do you place SJ in your extensive and catholic musical vocabulary?

              I hunted around for that record (pre internet days) as I has a special person I was prepared to send it to with a particularly specific message - never found it, so they never got the feedback they so richly deserved.... (don't think they would have found it funny, somehow, but I always have..... context is all...)
