Ling’s Note

by abubhaji

It’s all relative;
fuckin’
take Lydian
or Mixolydian –
                fuckin’
Sappho, Bro, invented that shit
in 7th century B.C., no lie              fuckin’
imagine Sappho
starting on the 7th, of C
in key of F, flattens the B,
fuckin’
B-flat being the minor
of G-flat (modes, bro), but          fuckin’
what’s a G-flat tonally? It’s A-sharp!
What’s A-sharp got to
do with the key of F?
Starting on the 7th, of C
bro, don’t you see?         fuckin’
Just play your A sharp,
you would think it wouldn’t work
it shouldn’t be in there right? fuckin’  you do it
anyway, you just
fuck with that note, just that
                                                                one
                                                                                note.
ha!         see?                      fuckin’
Make a seventh chord, 1st-3rd-5th-7th
fuckin’
what I want to hear are the notes in
between; the ones not
being played
by Sappho
