    /// When a man serenades Philistines,

    he may face some embarrassing scenes.

    Violins may not keep

    them from falling asleep.

    Time to bang on some loud tambourines!

    Stop hanging all over me and go take their wallets and cuff links – they’ll stay asleep as long as I keep playing.

    The boys say he’s just soporific

    But the ladies think Jascha’s terrific !

    he knows many things

    about fingering strings..

    you might call his skills “site-specific”///

    It is probably true of musicians

    That they will (under ideal conditions)

    Put bankers to sleep

    But the ladies just leap

    To offer them more than commissions..

    Thanks, P. Colli !

    There is no behavior more rude

    than that of this fiddling dude -

    He assaults the defenseless

    With scherzos (it’s senseless !)

    In their post-coital lassitude.

    /// Her right hand wandered over his middle

    and would pause, here and there, for a twiddle.

    Both her husband and lover

    were alike one another.

    In a way they each play second fiddle.

    I’ve heard of playing for “whose on top” … but playing for “whose behind”?

    Don’t worry honey, it’s the latest and greatest. They call them “strap-ons”.
