This peom came into being one night when I was playing with an anagram game and discovered that I had the letters for "A Bastard Son" but I couldn't use that as we weren't allowed to use any 'bad' words. However I could rearrange it, and I did, into Barmaids Sonata. Well the name sorta stuck with me for a while as did the anangram. I sorta remembered what a sonanta was, sorta, so I looked it up, thought, "oh I can write one of those" and did. Granted it's not the best, but it's not the worst I've seen either.
