Musica Myopica


Waltzing is done by ¾ time

A signature that is quite sublime

But I prefer 4-quarter beat

The kind that gets you on your feet

More raw, and not so stringy sweet


The rhythm comes from our Mother Earth

And those who live near her from their birth

Its roots are in hot jungle land

And arid bands of shifting sand

Where people live by toil of hand


Delicate music born of city

The waltz not found in vicinity

Of elephants, malaria

Culture that is hilarious

Millions for Stradivarius.
