Clinton's Key Note
The Summit talks will break an hour early
The instrument be lifted from its case
So Birmingham may savour
In crotchet and in quaver
A joy-of-sax and Clinton interface
The President, no stranger to a rondo
Or odd cadenzas on the saxophone
Will spend the evening wailing
While never once inhaling
A difficult technique he's made his own
And while he is on stage he may entreat them
To something in the recent smorgasbord
From Be-Bop through to Fusion
With possible inclusion
Of any little piece he may have scored
And so what if he stumbles on a blue note
Or deafens fellow diplomats 'til dawn
The press will have a story
And Birmingham the glory
Of seeing Bill Clinton brandishing his horn
