Cherished colleagues I invite you to submit entries for the August poetry competition on the subject heading “A Musical Turn”. This may relate to a dance, a musical instrument, a phrase in a song, even an unusual musical chord (go on Jason you can make one up). You can even write a song which I may put to music.
I realise that this subject may fall on deaf ears but anything on “sound” or ” noise” will be accepted. Please use your imagination but I have to say that musicality will win bonus points. Closing date 31 August – midnight GMT.

Hear, hear and food for thought, PG, thank you!
It was at the Prince Alfred club
Back in nineteen ninety three
Loads of people in the pub
enjoying an evening’s karaoke
It was perhaps our second date.
She held my hand, looked me in the eye
and said “If you really really wanna be my mate
go and sing for me Unchained Melody”
I froze, puzzled? I looked at her
She smiled, and nodded seriously
“Go get me a tequila… and another,
…and another.” The rest they say is history.
A true story would you believe?
That’s true romance, Soutie! 😉
And a little ditty from t’West Ridin’……. https://charioteers.org/2014/08/03/a-song-for-slacky-bottom/
One from me
Good evening Papa G,
Oh! Oh! Oh! what a wonderful theme!
Who wouldn’t be a poet, eh?
When you can rhyme skulduggery.
You can expect a sedate entry from me before the closing date.
You wrote a karaoke post a wee while back. You said that there was a song you were proficient at. I forgot what it was but Good Archivist that I am I found the blog. Now I am told you have been singing since at least 1993. This was roughly when I made my debut on the K circuit. You must have sang plenty of songs. Show us your set list of hits that you’ve crooned and I’ll show you mine.
A little ditty from me. The words probably don’t scan with the song it’s based on but that’s my normal style.
And I forgot to say my yearly gag at this time.
it is a pleasure to be with such august company.
