blown it


remember when you were a kid

and you got some tracing paper

and wrapped it round that thing

you use on your hair –

and blew to get a tune out of it?

a sort of cross between

a rasp and a kazoo

rasping and


making music

that irritated

and annoyed

your whole family



last night

during a particularly boring

football match

I got out

some tracing paper

wrapped it around

that thing you use

on your hair

raised it to my lips

and blew


and the whole country

sang along to the tune


It's humming comb
it's humming comb
it's humming
football's humming comb

It's humming comb
it's humming comb
it's humming
football's humming comb

To my shame, I laughed out loud. Nice work, Ian! ?

There are some memories here Ian. I believe there have been a number of chaps performing with said instrument in the past as well as individually.
An excellent piece my friend

Unusual one for you Ian - not your normal (hair)style. I love it as it does provide some relief from the intensity. Also I do like the sound quite a lot.

Inspiired Ian! Good to get a bit of levity when everyone's feeling down.
