    Walter emerges from the fallout shelter.
    An old poem given a new kick.
    A Wee original.




    ‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Robot,
    Knocking on the bomb shelter door;
    And his hovercraft hummed in the silence,
    On the edge of the molten core:
    A syborg flew out of the air vent ,
    Above the above the robot’s head:
    And he smote upon the door a second time;
    ‘Is there anybody there?’ he said.
    But the door remained shut to the Robot;
    No eye gazed from the portal hole
    No data scan was made from his red eyes,
    Though they burned as bright as coal.
    For he suddenly smote on the door, even
    Louder, and lifted his head:—
    ‘Tell them I came, and no one answered,
    That I kept my word,’ he said.
    No one came to the door of the shelter,
    To listen to the words he had spoken
    white noise crackled in the static
    no one was there to be awoken:
    Ay, no one heard the roar of the engine,
    Or the the sound of steel on stone,
    With a tick and click of the bomb door opened,
    When the roar of the engines was gone.

    I have gone for the Dystopian Themed Original Song for this week's season.

    It's built around my Les Paul Concert Ukulele passed through a Zoom G1X multi-effects pedal. Bass & Drums by Band in a Box. Primitive lead guitar by me on my Yellow Peril (Ibañez Gio Mikro 3/4 length electric guitar).

    Enjoy... or perhaps that's not quite the right word for this one

    No whippoorwill singing in this twilight, but there was a tree frog or something chirping.

    We don't have Dixie the puppy anymore, her owner took her back after he got his new place all set up. But we do have a new puppy, permanently this time, so I've included some gratuitous puppy footage after the song.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    I like to let pretty much anything fly in my weeks to be fair Keith. Especially with such a limited song list.
