Hosted by Chris Martin
“Songwriters of the World Unite”
So here we are the songwriters of the World
Coming from every neighbourhood
Singing about anything that takes our fancy
Be it cityscapes or be it the deep dark wood
So here we are songwriters of renown
Performing with our customary aplomb
Singing about the world and its wife
Until they decide to drop the big bomb
So we look to the songwriters and their art
Playing anywhere that we think they might dig us
Whether we sing about plain old meat and two veg
Or something artfully cooked with buttered asparagus
So we think we’re so creative, songwriters of the locale
Peddling our various tunes to anyone with ears
Playing to haughty consumers of any fancy cocktails
Or just some ruffians sinking a few beers . . .
Jason, poet, June 2023
