April 15: Karaoke Box
Empty orchestra? A misnomer, I’m afraid
This is a reveling hit parade.
File into this dimlit room
— Soon to be a star-making venue —
With an audience of your peers
Handpicked to allay your fears.
Settle into your vinyl seat
Snack on edamame and other treats.
Bang out a rhythm on the tambourine
Program a tune into the machine
Make your requests, try on a melody
Back-up vocals in a customized key.
The reverb is delicious
The point system capricious
One thing more: All I wish is
In your song choice, more hits than misses.
