The Proverb Singer
By Enola Jones
I had gone to get a cup of coffee when I heard the grumbles.
always knew he was eccentric, but that´s a little much!’
I hear you bad enough it´s proverbs, but it´s the same two over and over!’
The ones about saving for a rainy day and makin´ hay while the sun shines. I know.’
Yeah, but does he have to SING them? And who the hell is Audrey?’
I frowned. Audrey? Singing proverbs? What?
I focused on Sandburg and I had my answer. Sure enough, he was singing.
Oooh, Little Audrey says, save for a rainy day she saves, but every time it rains she spends what she´s saved away ’
I cracked up. Leave it to Sandburg to get the theme song from the ‘Little Audrey´ cartoons stuck in his head and to subject the rest of us to endless repetitions!
Leave it to Sandburg!
