For years I thought she was misnamed

her strident brogue voicing opinions

on all and sundry

perhaps a wee bit too loud
a little too often


But then I noticed that each time the radio

played some beautiful music

she would join in, her suddenly sweet voice

blending and harmonizing perfectly

with the orchestra


She’s always been thet way, her mother said

even as a tiny babe she would gurgle happily

and join in with the music. We couldn’t have

found a better name for her!


She’s a hoot, her husband said, dislikes organized

religion but when a choir starts singing she joins in


Would you believe it? Now she’s joined

the church choir, goes every week for practice

she sdoesn;t care about the pope

just loves the melodies of the hymns
