Poetry ~ Life in B minor

If I could live 
in a musical -
I'd bellow
happiness
in B minor

sit on the roof
with family 
and sing of
traditions -
Traditions!

croon love songs
from mountain tops

sing of lemon drops
beyond the rainbow

gather the band
and march with
seventy-six trombones!

when life hands you
a pandemic, 
an insurrection, 
and locks you down -

break out the songs,
adjust your crown,
and dance!
