10 of 12 given words:
beef piped running archaic everything 
carry appear shoulders stone hay

where's the beef?
not the boring piped music
monotonously running but variety
not archaic but contemporary
favorites that whet the appetite

everything one desires
requests entertained willingly
they carry a repertoire
that can appear anytime
spanning the years

with just a guitar strap
over the shoulders
not stoned nor playing haywire
but very alert
not minus-one nor pre-recorded
but musical fare offerings at real time

street performers have
come a long way!

  1. "with just a guitar strap
    over the shoulders"

    Amen, baby.

  2. I like the thought in the last line: "musical fare offerings at real time"

  3. They carry a repertoire of so much more within - unappreciated, undelivered.

  4. Wonderful last line Hank, conjurs up many thoughts.


  5. Your poem is quirky, Hank, and I was drawn to the lines:
    'with just a guitar strap
    over the shoulders
    not stoned nor playing haywire
    but very alert'.
    We have buskers like these in Norwich and they are very talented musicians.

  6. Sure have the talent and bring it out without the need for other additions.

  7. Ah, that is the kind of music I like. Street performers are any day better than studio recorded and altered sounds.

  8. Buskers are cool, and usually fine musicians (with some exceptions). Nice use of past words; makes me want to go find some buskers downtown.

  9. not the boring piped music
    monotonously running

    - the art of street performance as introduced by these well worded lines ...
    this is an interesting poem - a sort of notation of a programme of what is offered in so many places now ... well done!

  10. Sometimes it could be so cool... but so often we just pass by... street musicians deserves to be listened to.
