Benjamin Plays Bass Guitar

From the book The Armpit of Doom

Benjamin plays bass guitar
completely out of tune.
Sarah sings while sucking from
a helium balloon.

Payton plays piano with her
elbows and her chin.
Brayden bangs on buckets
with a plastic bowling pin.

Nathan’s nose has two kazoos;
one sharp, the other flat.
Bailey sits on bagpipes
sounding like a screaming cat.

We play this way on purpose
with a sound no one can stand.
It’s fun to be the country’s most
annoying student band.
