Playing oud for the image-music:
"What do I look like playing oud?"
Self-conscious poser that I am,
Hoping this is less than spam,
Although I play it's worth a damn,
This isn't music for a jam,
It's fairly skilled, I'm not a ham,
I've studied oud, I've tried to cram,
I've studied here and on the lam,
It's heavy work, it's not a sham,
It's not hard rock, not even glam,
Not background Muzak on a tram,
Not something grating for a slam,
Not quibble-dribble for a scam,
But something for the Court of Cham!
