Street Corner

Street Corner

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

playing guitar

"

When I picked up the Toad in the garden

It immediately threatened a wart

We were usually awfully darn friendly

But at that moment, it didn’t want to cavort

 

Bugs were his thing, for them he would sing

His sweet voice made them all gather round

Then, after an he’d eaten each admirer

He’d double burp and hide back underground

 

Seeing that, I tried street corner, supper singing

Just realizing five bucks from John the Bishop

All others said my voice was a disaster

And I should sing only from some distant hilltop

 

T’was then Toad offered to sing, as I played guitar

With his fabulous voice ringing out far and near

But so many insects soon swarmed all round us

We gave up, using John’s fiver to buy some cold beer

And we're all happy to be spared your singing

No. I was just "posing" :)
A happy solution was found at the end and the cold beer a definite win win situation. A nice bit of busking on the street corner. Do you play guitar?
