I found a dead fly in my Steinway which prompted this poem

A FLY IN THE PIANO

It came to light behind the Steinways smiling face

A fly that buzzed deep inside the grandiose case

An insect tune it played upon the sitka spruce

A siren song that begged and begged to be set loose

How did it get there, was it by some grand design?

A classical fly, a fly that dared to opine

To give advice with beating wings upon the strings

But could a fly opine on such musical things?

With a prop of the lid, given wide open space

The fly was gone from this musical interface
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"
