A reworking of a previous - story-poem.


Now it has to be said before I set out. Ramsgate - is not and will never be a hot bed of culture! BUT - some days - this happens!:

I were walking down Queen Street - lovely summers day - mid week
I could hear a violin - being violated - cliche - sounded like a cat in pain!
I feared my ears would spontaneously bleed! - I steppe up my pace -
To get away!
Just then I spotted an Afro-Brit - mum - baby in a pushchair
She - The Mum - stopped - bent down - tucked in her sweet child - both smiling

Then - walked over to street musician - she smiled - the mother - mum - mummy
With out a word - took the violin from the perpetrator of the pain I had injured
The mum - tucked the violin under her chin - then - smiling - let rip - belted out Mozart - Unchained! - played - as he intended - when he'd sat down and composed
When he had music fore the maces - in mind - in his time! long go
The Mum - did - Mozart - justice - how he would of danced around - appreciating
His work being plaid - as he intended! being plaid - with passion - freely - full of joy
The melody unbounded!

A man - who'd not uselessly - say he liked classical music - '' rubbish '' - be his
Reaction - if asked - moments - before - what he thought - of classical music
Took his hat around the gathering audience - many now gathering - to listen - to - the - mum - with attitude - she danced around with the violin - dancing - the street
Her stage
The hat was filling up with coinage - and foldings!
When The Mum - finished her performance - applauds filled the air!
Not far from the performance - and oh what a performance - she gave!

In my minds eye - I swear - I saw - Mozart - cavorting - among us!

When she had finished - completed her set - she was dripping - cobs - of sweat!
She - handed - back the violin - he wore a look of amazzmant - took back his violin
Put it away in it's case - walked away!
The Mum - got back behind the pushchair - went on with her afternoon!
