The Buskers Dilemma

Their pitch was in the perfect location

Their routine rehearsed to perfection

and for once – the sun was shining

No problem with people passing by,

or pigeons up in the blue sky

they had a crowd, who cheered laughed and cried

They sung out most of the afternoon

till the dawn of the appearing evening moon

their caps and cups full, with notes and coins

and rendezvoused back in a caff to rejoin

But after their breakfast and coffee and tea

they soon departed from their moment of glee

for after their repast, after singing their tome

they just had enough for the bus fare home

Absent Minded

#Promptuarium #Napowrimo

Salford 24th April 2020

He was part of the attraction

of the rock star band

people would roar, on every tour

when they saw him stand

One day, though in August

something happened out on stage

as the large unwieldly Iron man

thought he was Jimmy Page

No Guitar to speak of,

though his speakers they did blast

heard from far , playing air guitar

playing the bands hits from the past

The band all looked round speechless

as he did his bit to their songs

but the fans they all were cheering

so join in they did , before long

And after the concert was finished

and the robot was boxed away

the fans they would all still be talking

about the day, air guitar he did play

Musical

Monday 30th December 2019

Sat up in the gods, or in the stalls

enjoying the vibe of the tunes

nailing together the storyline and

sewing up all the loose threads

as you watch the actors tell the tale, you

tap away in rhythm with the cast

it wont be long till you join in with the rest

on the request of one of the actors on stage – as the

next thing you know – you’re leading the chorus

Friday Musical Fun

Imperial War Museum North, Manchester, 4th November

Preparations for the Christmas volunteer celebration across the Museums involved in the

Volunteer for Wellbeing programme continue a pace.

As well as picking up the tunes from previous sessions, we’ve started on the Christmas number, “Winter Wonderland”

We’ve already started on the Christmas number “Mary did you know” – and its sounding really good!  Its just of a question of how much we polish the performance.

Today saw a whole day of practice as we work towards the Christmas Volunteer Event at the end of the year.  It’s improved my confidence – though my two left feet won’t stretch to dancing!

So it’s Practice in the Day….and Inspiration at Night – Michael Buble’s playing on the IPad as I type away 🙂
