Bluegrass Haikus

Mar 14, 2016

Bluegrass Haikus

With a little help from the Horse Bluegrass lyric-generating Twitter bot…

We looked down the line
Dear Nellie since I came here
Please don’t ever shine

When we were happy
The bright lights and bright and gay
Last night I know now

If I could I hear
No falsehood and no more wine
And the red shoes on

But still I find that
I'm taking you to jail if
you find me gone cold

Riding on a young
man, you better run, I know
you ain't living right

I shot my woman
with a false-hearted woman,
that I couldn't sleep

But I'll be a man
on that West Virginia line
My love was so blind

There she will wear the
robe and crown, and high on the
river at midnight

Now lie ‘neath the friends
that leads up to my home, and
I thought it was grand

The above is a work of satire. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental … although entirely likely.
