Music Prompt #3: “Whiskey in the Jar” sung by Metallica #musicchallenge

One day in a shed, us kids and our Dad’s old brew
Feeling vicarious and smart, though we’re scrawny
Pile it on, pile it on, we shouted, no one disagrees

Beer with mashed potatoes and a wedge of cheese
We talked and talked like witches and their cauldron
One day in a shed, us kids and our Dad’s old brew

With our primitive glee made wild, we’re enjoying this
Loud music coming from the radio, we giggled with our jokes
Feeling vicarious and smart, though we’re scrawny

Friends from the neighbourhood, they’re here, too
More beer, more crisps, Dad’s brew is good
Pile it on, pile it on, we shouted, no one disagrees*

* Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C
