The Neighborhood Band

Turning down the tune of the Must Do's, that ever playing song in my head , I stole an extra hour of sleep.
Through an open window a band of cicadas played castanets with a trio of unknown birds .
The lead singer scolded her impudent daughter with a bellowing howl
I grabbed my pillow to muffle the noise.
Who left the neighborhood on this station?
Slowly the Must Do's began to sing again.
Stolen slumber was
never found
as I made my way down to the studio tuned into the song I know too well.
