Verse – Sirens

The women of the choir
were flirting as they sang,
eyes rolling, tilting heads,

enticing males who heard
the notes and interludes,
but knew it was absurd:

– Steve Shoemaker, Urbana, IL, Dec. 22, 2014

Editor’s Note: Hmmm. I’ve often wondered why Steve sings in three choirs. Maybe Steve and the rest of the basses, tenors, and baritones come to rehearsals as Tritons, the male equivalents of  Sirens?
