Learning to play

Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy

was one of the earliest tunes I learnt to play

on a guitar

a friend had lent to me.

Two chords

strummed with such enthusiasm,

the rhythm didn’t matter.

We didn’t care about getting the pitch right

Even if someone thought we should.

Just another memory

from the times

when we made more mistakes.
