Piano Forte

Stilted same few chords
hymnal hypocrisy
Fur Elise in five keys
but the hammer hits futile
and the strings all flaccid
lacking tenacity or tensile strength
or thought
in the sameness of this
a perpetual coda
treble clef
trouble cleft
and the audience seems all
to have gone in
but alas, play on
in cavalier cut-time now
monkey-grinder monotonous
for free.
