I sing a song

A Poem by Jon Roggie

Something I learned as a child.
 You tell a story,
  or sing a song.

Passes the time.  

 some of these songs are recent history,
   and have a different style.

"Ain't we crazy?
  This is the way we pass the time away.
 The man behind the counter was a woman all old and gray,
  who stuck between her legs between her legs ,
   and stood that way all day."

Now to understand this,
 you would have to been on a few trips to the river.

Harry Mac McClintock could tell a story.

Story telling, songs and nursery rhymes passed down the line through the generations. Some funny, some wise, some scary and some absurd. But all are words spoken or sung. Good morning Jon. Thank you for yours.

Morning to you! If I figure out how to do it, I will post the story of the purple gorilla.

That sounds like fun and purple is my favourite colour.

Trying to figure out how to do voice recordings, and it does turn into a long story!
I would love to hear these in your voice, instead of the one in my head.

I tend to ramble, and rarely explain myself. Take that as you will more..
