There was a young lady from Putney
Who loved to eat pies laced with chutney!
She ate pies by the score
And then bleated for more
And the people accused her of glutney.
See my blog of 11/1/10 to learn more about this alphabetical meme.

And an old one for good measure.


An intriguing photograph, deserving consideration.
What do you make of this little mystery?
A soldier seemingly escaped from some mad conflagration!
A piano where a piano shouldn't be!
Did some refugee start fleeing with the piano on his back
And find it was impossible to carry?
Did he fall behind the others as they walked the woodland track?
Did they plead with him and say he must not tarry?
Did it break his heart to leave it in the woods, to age and rot?
Did he cast some backward glances as he left?
Did he then flee with the others, all in fear of being shot?
And was his heart forever quite bereft?
Perhaps this soldier was a man with intellect and soul;
Perhaps he slipped away to ease his mind.
Perhaps he was revolted by his ghastly war-like role;
Perhaps this piano was a wondrous find.
What did he play, I wonder, as he stood there in the glade;
Maybe 'Chopsticks' was all that he could play.
But two hearts were united in the forest's leafy shade,
The soldier's and the man who ran away.
Just my interpretation! It could have been a pose
To advertise some product! Nothing more!
But don't tell me, anyone 'out there', who, in reality, knows;
Reality can sometimes be a bore!
