Bass Clef

O bass clef of doom
how you torture me

nefarious bass clef
do I find it so hard to read you
while the treble clef seems natural
like birdsong
or waffles

I know basically what you mean
but still I struggle
and I stop in the middle of a piece
to anxiously count your lines
and ensure that that really is a G

I can play by ear like crazy
O bass clef of terror
but whenever I sight read
you are lurking there
smiling your cruel smile

Curses on the head
of the evil fiend
who decided the bass and treble clefs
had to be all different for some reason

bass clef
you bastard
