He Wasn't On The Bill

- - For Dad

The radios play on
as he waves his hands
with articulated gesture.

He's leading the Chicago symphony,
with only a Bic Pen.

They're following quite well.

Capping the pen
he turns and takes bow.

Suddenly the first row
springing from their seats,

rise to give him an ovation.
Not bad for forty-nine cents.
