Mercy! Mercy!

        "Object to be Destroyed" by Man Ray







I'm a beat-keeper still in my prime.
Destroying me would be a crime!
Here'e a much better way
to honour Man Ray -
Call me "Keeping One Eye on the Time."









Tess urges us to "Keep up with the band, you lot" with her prompt for Mag 146.

  5. Thinks:- Alternative way to give a good ticking off to those out to destroy?! Almost sounds like a crossword clue, don't you think? Maybe too cryptic, though...

    1. Without the picture I think it would be somewhat overcryptic.

    1. Why indeed? The music they play is a more musical and less boring than much contemporary pop/rock/grunge/punk etc.

Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
