Mr Hirsh Short Concerto by Hanoch Guy

Unmatched saucers and cups smash
Pans bang pots.
Sleeping cats given marching orders
to red mice.
Door knobs fall.
Faucets glued.
Bumble bees swarm dance with trombones .
Jacob with a flaming hair
Throws a drum tantrum
Pregnant women cello trio tune
and yawn .
