Orchestralist - Re: The Bells


by Alton Thompson


Read our postings on the bells–

all the bells!

What a boundless seminar my e-mailbox foretells!

When I check it late at night

I see a constant appetite

for those subject lines still telling

of the science of their knelling

all the time, time, time–

it inspires me to rhyme!

this incessant inundation

on their tintinnambulation

and unbounded overtiming

on the physics of their chiming–

not a crime, crime, crime–

and it doesn't cost a dime!

this enduring dissertation with resounding ritournelles

on the bells, bells, bells, bells,

bells, bells, bells–

all our postings and ripostings on the bells!
