Description
I found this old poem I wrote awhile back and decided to set it to music.

Lyrics
I keep my heart in a ziplock bag
cushioned by styrofoam peanuts
Then I roll it in a dirty ole rag
And hide it in frozen halibuts

Why do I go to so much fuss?
Why bother guarding my heart?
There's really not much to discuss
To me, it's just being smart

No one will steal a frozen lump
Hiding amidst the fish
No one will break my tender pump
Keeping it free from anguish

So heed my words, you silly doof
And guard your heart as well
My whole, frozen heart is the proof
Even if it does sorta smell.

nice
Good going

Your words of wisdom are always appreciated.
The more you share the more people care.
At least sometimes. I like the fact that you are getting
your stuff out. So we can hear. I am not sure about the
smelling part. Good thing there is not "web o smell" :)

I'm glad there's not web-o-smell, too, because who wants to rub halibut on a
song? Thanks for listening, Tiler!

That's far more sensible, though not as off-putting (one of the goals of a
frozen heart!). Thanks for listening, _nder!

a tender pump, well-protected
and an excellent poem well-delivered. I may contact you
about collaborating on an old poem of mine, if you are
interested. This piece gave me some ideas...

What would life be without
a ziplock bag. I am slayed here. What a wacky
concept...really fun Joanna....you silly doof. I guess I'll
never hear that piano the same way again. Great job!
Now I know what my refridgerator says in the mornings.

Are you alright?
I'm concerned about your obsession. Can I help?

I'm laughing. Great songlet.

Nothing a few dozen years of therapy won't cure! Thank you so much

Many people have said that comedy comes from pain. So if it strikes a chord
and still makes you smile, I've done my job! Thank you, FB, for listening!
