How long till you suss the tune?



The fish, it was a fraud
It was partially fried.
Passed off as fresh home made
But, of course I lied
And I would have made some chips,
I cut potatoes into strips
But no oil could I find
Oh what a bind
So that wer that
I’ve got no fat
I threw them out
Which is how there came about
This crazy mixed-up cuisine,
Not the meal it should have been
But it will have to suffice
Perhaps though not as nice
I will serve rice .................

Ah , every day is a skool day, I can't play any stringed instruments now since a severe arthritis in 2017, Since then finger joints have lost mobility, I can still play keyboards because you are moving your knuckles and wrists, with not much finger flexibility, Curving my fingers is better now that it was but, pressing on the strings is very limited now,

"Hooray " I hear them cheer next door,

my left hand isn't good mobility wise because of arthritis which is why i use the capo a lot as the stretch between frets is shorter.
