Rengay Through the Seasons #8 [1-5]

by Daniela Bullas (db), and Vaughn Seward (vs);
Rengay #8 (Oct 21-27) Verses 1-5 (of 6):

All 'round the scarecrow / a large flock of loud blackbirds — he wears new old clothes. /db
Just-built library courtyard — Mahatma Gandhi's bronze head. /vs

A whodunit book — disguising his appearance / with a judge’s wig. /db
His peg-leg missing — the Captain orders "no rum" / till someone 'fesses. /vs
Pinocchio's nose — the cricket / sings a modern, pop'lar tune. /db

I really like how this one is going. :)

Borut said...

To be expected: a wooden nose would be likely to inspire a cricket and lead back to a poplar tune?:) My misreading problems, again...

i took this as casting doubt upon the sincerity/veracity of modern lyrics
(but then i am an old cynic) :)

Andrew: Thanks.

Borut: It is a reference to N.A. pop culture. Check in tomorrow and hopefully the notes section of the worksheet will clarify things a little.

Floots: Haha, that is good. :-)

John: Thanks.

Pat: That's for sure. :-)

Polona: Very much. Thanks.
