i pick up my old guitar

i kid myself that i can play

i close my eyes

i begin to strum away

to me

i don't sound too bad

a few more lessons

and i will get there,

says i

my fingers are too big

i lost the end of one of them

when i wasn't much older than a kid

i can play the drums

fairly well

seen as how

i've only had them for about

seven months

maybe it's because i get to,

kick and i get to thump them

i would love to have them here with me

while i'm living in my tent

i don't think the other campers would agree

i'd expect they would think different

so again i pick up my old guitar

i kid myself

that i can play

i close my eyes

and i begin to strum away.
