Poem for today by Pete Jardin

CBG-sn001

 

Built in a shed

Using a mix of old and new

Silly and sensible

Quality and tat

 

Conceived as a joke

Then made solid

Through 3D modelling

And low quality power tools

 

Half a set of guitar strings

Fence post for a neck

Battery and speaker

Amplified mayhem

 

As the slide rides up to the twelfth

And the glassy notes fill the air

I’m reassured

This was the right thing to do
