Bassoon Concerto

Bassoon Concerto

by Elizabeth Challinor

Who better than Mozart 

To evoke

The joyous art

Of trivial conversation 

In B-Flat Major

The sound

Of two chubby men

Sitting together 

At a table

Dressed in black suits

Wearing white shirts and bowler hats

Stretching out their legs

Laughing into their laps

At the ridiculous beauty

Of it all

Of simply being alive

Elizabeth Challinor
