I sit upon my shore.
Ignoring the fact,
That I've made a pact.
To myself.
That I would leave no instrument on it's shelf.
I think to myself.
Of that one sound so ripe.
Gosh, I want myself a bagpipes.

I'm going to get a bagpipes whether the world wants me to or not.

*Hmm?*

Yes?

*Aren't bagpipes weird?*

No, owning a bagpipes wouldn't be weird.

*Yes it would.*

Oh? That's your opinion.

*They're pretty lame.*

Seriously. Bagpipes are cool.

*Nope.*

Don't even try to argue. Give in to the pipes.

*What?*

No. Be silent. Let the bagpipes envelop you.

*Where are you even from? Is this normal there?*

The land of bagpipes. Where I am home.

*So you're from Scotland?*

No. I need a bagpipes. So I will be home.

**Curtains behind unleash 10,000 bagpipes.**

*OH GOD. Why do you have so many bagpipes!?*

They are my brethren.

*They're just sitting there bro.*

*I am home.*

I don't even know why I wrote that. but it occupied me. Good day.
When I hear those Bagpipes roar,

When I hear those Bagpipes roar,
My heart begins to soar.

Frozen in my tracks,
My mind wanders back.

To a piper I once knew
Whose heart was pure and true.

He played those pipes like angels sing,
I often wondered, "Where are his wings?"

Those bagpipes casted a spell on me,
And that Irish lad's face is all I could see.

I used to weep when those pipes would sound,
Because for the moment my lost heart felt found.

See, that piper is the strongest man I ever met,
But because my heart was immature, I was'nt ready for him yet.

As years pass by, this broken heart has begun to heal.  
Yet as soon as I hear those faithful pipes, my heart starts to feel.

Time has a way of putting our mistakes far in the past,
But I have to accept that Celtic sound will forever last.

So when you see that kilt and bearskin come marching in the room,
Do as I do 'listen' and soon your heart will bloom.

For those bagpipes serve a bigger role then i ever knew, That thunderous sound can only come from a select few.

And behind one of those pipes, stands a beautiful man, but he never notices I'm his biggest fan.

Bagpipes

Early morning message
There are
Bagpipes
In
The
Ghetto
Like when teachers give textbook assignments
Knowing the solutions are in the back
Doesn’t matter how you learn
Show up on time with the answers
What a rocking knock
A clock to the jaw
People die
One just did
Listen, you can hear it

i.
are you even capable of love?

ii.
you're unquenchably disgusting, horrible.
when i see you, i want to kiss you
and punch you in the face.
(all in the same breath.)
you could never love me as i love you.
i am numb, numb to all you say.
i 'love' you, but you...
you are the most pathetic worm i have ever seen.
crawling for attention, vying for every girl's affection.
you're (i'm) an idiot
for ever dreaming of you and i.

iii.
have i gotten too good at pretending?
(there's no such thing as being too good.)

iv.
spit me out as though i was an afterthought.
you chewed up my heart and i
expect  nothing in return.
nothing.

v.
(not even your love.)

But never bagpipes.

Romantic people,
Doing romantic things,
In romantic places...

Accompanied by the romantic sound of
Piano,
Violin,
Or maybe even harp...


But never bagpipes.

Feel the cold air
hear the sounds
the bagpipes
the prayers

Take time
to remember
to hear
the stories

Stand up
appreciation for
the soldiers
that carried us

Home

bagpipes glowing

this quiet shore
keeping birds
in flight

healing the
soul

this land
i know

The sound of his bagpipes was thrillin'

There was a Scots soldier, Bill Millin
The sound of his bagpipes was thrillin'
The Germans thought how sad-
The poor man's quite mad-
We'll not waste a bullet on him then

Limericks are usually light-hearted, this one not so much.
The tradition of going to war playing moral-boosting bagpipes was forbidden in the British army during the 1914-18 war as it tended to attract enemy fire. On June 6th 1944 however, Bill Millin was ordered to play the pipes on Sword beach as the D-day landings were in full swing.
He escaped injury because the German gunners, deciding he was completely bonkers, did not fire on him.  He died aged 88 a couple of years ago.
he would play his bagpipes and do his little dance

there was little octopus he just loved to sing
but the thing he loved most of all was the highland fling
he would play his bagpipes and do his little dance
with his funny legs he just love to prance
he just loved the bagpipes he just played away
doing his little jig that made him bright and gay
he was very happy in scottish kilt
with his little hat  he wore at a tilt
he just loved the joy that it used bring
he was very happy to do the highland fling

he would play his bagpipes and do his little dance

he was very happy in scottish kilt
with his little hat he wore at a tilt
he just loved the joy that it used bring
he was very happy to do the highland fling.
