Chopin à la Joplin

I open up the music book
    And sit before the keys;
I play an old familiar hook
    Made specially for these:

I play the "Marche" by Chopin, Fred,
    And play it as a rag,
Although I'm sure he'd rather be dead
    Than hear his march in drag.

O.O

Poetry

For as long as I can remember, this is what i’ve wanted to do. If I couldn’t play basketball, being a musical artist was definitely next in line. 188 more words
