Don't Let That Hose Eat That Violin
for voice (mezzo soprano or soprano), violin, and bassoon
by Allan Blank (1925-2013) - American composer

Poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, from "The Coney Island of the Mind". 

Don't let that horse
eat that violin
cried Chagall's mother
But he
Kept right on
And became famous
And kept on painting
The Horse With Violin In Mouth
And when he finally finished it
he jumped up upon the horse
and rode away
waving the violin
And then with a low bow gave it
to the first naked nude he ran across
And there were no strings
