Trombone Solo by Stoddard King



TROMBONE SOLO

I like people
Who strut their stuff,
Any kind of people,
Nice ones of tough,
I like people,
With swagger in their step,
Hot-air people, full
Of popcorn and pep,
Four-flushing people
Whose gestures are free –
Strut your stuff, people,
Don’t
Mind
Me!

I like people
Who feel their oats,
High-stepping people
With ego in their throats,
Telling tall stories,
Taller than the steeple,
Getting away with it –
That kind of people.
If it’s done properly,
Carried with an air,
Strut your stuff, people –
I
Won’t
Care

Stoddard King
