I was assinged to write a poem showing my admiration for something. As a bassist, my mind quickly shot towards bassists. I couldn't pick one so I just did bassist in general. This is what I came up with, I hope you like it.

From Claypool to Wooten
John Paul Jones and Flea
When the bassist arrives
My heart fills with glee
I stand up when they crank the lows
And pick up their plectrum
As they unleash upon the world
Their subsonic spetrum
But never the less
There are posuers galore
Who fail badly to imitate
The dieties they adore
So go to a show
Maybe even tonight
And when the four-strings come out
Cry "Bassist Unite!"

I hope you liked it =P

check out all they videos on youtube
they dead serious about thuggin like that
if you ask me they are fruity
an i hope one morning they drown in there fruit loops

I thought it was pretty good. As a critique, I dunno if you've turned this in, but I have some advice.

Try reading it out loud.

I felt like the following lines felt odd when read aloud, like it could flow better.
"I stand up as they crank the lows <----this line in particultar seems too long for flow
And pick up their plectrum
As they unleash upon the world
Their subsonic spetrum" (although I liked the rhyme of plectrum and spectrum)

But seriously, great job! Its awesome

I...

All of it.

...Tattooed on my back?
Les Claypool
Geddy Lee
Robert DeLeo
Flea

Weileder

...Coincidence? I think not.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
