Tone Deaf Limerick

Tone Deaf Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A woman who crooned out of key
Did it loudly with pleasure and glee.
She believed she sang well,
Like a beautiful bell.
But “please stop,” was the usual plea.

(For Think Tank Thursday’s “key.”)

You can find much of my music humor here.

    Quite a few people out there fancy exercising their pipes much to the consternation of those around them. Your poem portrays that scene brilliantly.

    When e’er she did recitative,
    everyone said it was their pet peeve.
    But her arias? Worse.
    When she sang, all would curse.
    From her ‘talent’ there was no reprieve.

  7. Sounds like some of the singers I hear on karaoke night!

    Not a plea you are likely to hear!

    A woman who crooned out of key
    Said there’s Do and then Ray and then Me,
    I must meet Tee and Law
    To complete the jigsaw
    then my octave wont be all at sea.
