Ode To Jazz

Jazz is grandpa's music,

There is no doubt about it.

His cooking tastes different,

Grandma's cookies tastes brilliant,

And everything is plain fun.

Jazz reminds us of famous players

Like Louis Armstrong,

B.B. King,

And Duke Ellington too.

Jazz is good music,

And everyone knows it,

Unless you like songs with words,

For jazz is just like regular music

And that's the good part about jazz.

Jazz is like a brand new car,

It makes your heart pound

Like a drum.

Jazz lets your feelings show.

Victims! ! ! ! ! Everywhere on earth. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
