a rather wooden member of the String family—
was always pulling things to get ahead,
whereas Little Miss Tambourine (complete with bells on),
was always in the mood to be banged.
They fought ivory tooth & nail
for a piece of Piano Man,
who couldn’t decide which family he should marry into.
Clarinette was a member of the stiff & longwinded Woodwinds
& a breath of hot air who
wiled away her hours getting blown.
She also knew his secret—
that he was of a different persuasion.
When she outed him onstage,
he went for Trumpet,
who was always blowing his own horn.
