Steal The Instruments
Choose horn, drum, stringed, keyed, or anything you like.
But take nothing from a music store.
It must be from the owners; they have more to lose.
Bob loves his bass. Sally lives for sax. Tony sleeps with his tuba.
So sneak into band practice and steal when they take five.
Crawl through the window when they break for dinner.
Be a roadie for a day and volunteer your trunk for transport.
Rush the field at halftime and really steal the show.
Have fun with it, and soon only those who crave the art will risk the loss,
Practicing in secret until they drum up the nerve to play in the light.
We all win when the fame-hungry fakers are scared away from music.
