The Works of Dudley Duo Flush

The Works of Dudley Duo Flush

Dudley Duo Flush, little known composer,
was known and was little,
let his reputation rust,
until it was quite brittle.
Made his own hand harpsichord
out of coral, sea shells,
silver wire and honey brown barked wood.
Its sound and his compositions were unique.
Even high critics agreed,
they admitted they were good.
They asked him why
he did not play his tunes on piano,
organ or violin.
“I cannot play a note on them,”
he answered with a grin.
This rather baffled them,
but on he swam in his own seas,
a fish with golden gills,
and flashing silver fin.
“While the wheels of the world
turn against love,
still you must make the heart vulnerable,”
he said. “And uncage the dove.”
