What a Blast!

Had a dream the other night.
Opened up a secret door.
Reached in for a golden trumpet.
Notes that brought an end to war.

  1. Nice one as usual, Dave. Again it takes me back – this time to “Ill Wind” by Flanders and Swann. But there the horn does not bring peace – rather it stirs up other passions (and re-interprets Mozart!)

      1. Yes indeed – beautiful wordsmithery and a skillful accompanist. From youtuber’s comments I was pleased to see that another of theirs, A Song of Patriotic Prejudice, is still understood to be satirical and ironic – I was worried it might have been banned. Satire and irony seem to be under pressure these days. Keep up the good work.
