Whistle

Pfft.

Pfffft.

Pfffffttttt. Pfft. Pfft.

Pfft.

PFFFFFTTTTT!!!!!!

It’s one of life’s little mysteries
That’s never really bothered me
I’ve never been able to whistle, see
But I’m OK with that.

I’m not musically minded, though
And when I try it really shows
But I very often have a go
And I’m OK with that.

I can whistle a little bit
Very faint and quite high pitched
It actually sounds a little shigh
Yet I’m OK with that.

I find lately I hum a lot
As whistling I just cannot
Do. This poem’s gone to pot
Still I’m OK with that.

But whistlin’ and me, we don’t get on
And it’s terrible when I hear a song
And I simply have to pffffft along
‘Though I can live with that.

Pfffft.

A bit of fun for this week’s Brew’N’Spew Café; the link to Eugenia’s site is above.

  1. I am not good at whistling either. My whistles sound more like a squeak. Fun poem, Tom! And thank you for joining the challenge. Btw, I love the word, pfffft!

  2. My dad was a great whistler and I’m quite good at it too, although my Gran used to quote this at me if she heard me whistling, “A whistling woman and a crowing hen is good to neither god nor men.” This didn’t deter me in the least. 😀

  3. I used to whistle along with the radio without even realizing I was doing it when I worked in an office many years ago. I’m sure my co-workers would have loved to throttle me! So don’t feel badly about your non-whistle – it may save your life! 😉

    • Hehehe! Thanks, Diane.
      If I could whistle, I’d probably do it out of tune. Have I mentioned I’m not particularly musical? 😉
