Music Lessons

Why do songs
written to help children learn the basics
of various musical instruments
always have names like
“The Happy Farmer”
and “Fairy Footsteps”
and “Dancing Through the Raindrops”?
If I were writing these songs
they would be called
“You Are Going to Hate This Song by Thursday”
and “I Guess We’re Learning About Arpeggios Now”
and “Here Are Some Eighth Notes in No Particular Order”
just to keep things
a little more honest
