Music in His Blood

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Nov 11, 2016

He sings all night
And works all day
He is rather big
In a small kind of way.

His heart would always
Skip a beat
When playing his music
In the street.

The crowd would always
Gather round to listen
To his self-made sound.
He never made it in the charts
Like so many others with his art.

Acoustic guitar, amp and a plug
That is all he needs
When he has music in his blood.
