Below lots of art.

O, do not lose heart!

Come inside and you’ll find my cell.

The big house sits in my view

And singers who live here aren’t few.

On my yellow rose signs.

Next door you’ll find many a pew.

You will find me out in plain sight.

As you stand on the brick

But it’s better than sitting on floors.

Tell me why I’m surrounded by glare.

The clinking of glass,

A foot on the brass,

O, please don’t spill beer in my hair.
