Prelude in Keytar Minor


You Can’t Fool Me with Those Guitar Riffs—I Know a Polka Instrument When I Hear One

I think I’d never seen a keytar till my children showed me one;
Pretends to be some kind of gui-tar…BUT—it’s an accordion.
Besides, unless I get a beat-ar, I cannot affordion.

I guess that it’s a synthesizer, using electronics
To give the keyboard improviser uber-cool harmonics—
Or else a gadget-phobic miser fits of histrionics.

I never liked an instrument you must keep turning on an' off,
Cuz you know when someone jams on it, you certainly will wan' it off.
But what is that I hear now?  Did you say it plays…Rachmaninoff?
