An Illusory Guitar!


AN ILLUSORY GUITAR

This is my blood-relation,
Doing this strange gyration!
Cousin Richard's son
Having lots of fun
With a lot of animation!
*
It's the Air Guitar he's playing;
The expression he's conveying
Denotes  the thrill
Of this noble skill
And the music he's portraying.
*
To play the Air Guitar;
And be considered a star,
You give an illusion,
 Creating confusion,
And folk say how great you are!
*
I believe there are A.G. schools
Where people learn the rules.
If you're young and lithe
And you can writhe
You already possess the tools!
*
Now this was some years ago;
Matthew's cut his hair, I know.
He's a family man!
I doubt if he can
Find time to put on a show.
*
Maybe one of his sons will say
'I want something cheap to play'
'There'd nothing to spend!
All you do is pretend!
Here's the music! Start right away!'

That's a nice poem, Rinky.
I haven't seen your OSI or Haiku Bones lately. Guess we both are still doing it, just not peeking in on each other.
Happy MW Blues--it linked to here but I don't see the MWB credit or link?
