50 Shapes Of Grae – No. 2. The Triangle.

’50 Shapes Of Grae – No. 2. The Triangle.’

The triangle

Makes a ‘ting!’

Or a ‘tong!’

Sometimes, if you don’t clean it well enough,

It can make a ‘pong!’

It has three sides

And a bar to make its knell;

It’s made out of metal

Plastic wouldn’t work so well,

And wood

Would be

No good;

I know

Because I can tell

The difference between

A hawk and a handsaw.

With a fourth side

Would a triangle be

A third better?

No!

It’s hard to disagree;

The fourth side

Would put tings all to pot,

And to be or not to be a triangle…?

It would not.

A three-sided instrument

Of terror;

Often bought young children

In error;

For many a drummer started out

With a triangle and a bar to clout.
