Inappropriate Poetic Subjects #5 – Sonata Allegro Form

Franz Joseph Haydn

If you want a big production
You tack on an introduction

Before assuming the position
Starting with an exposition

Whether high-class or low-rent
You have to have development

You’ll land in a situation
Without recapitulation

Clean it out with baking soda
Top it off with a short coda

There is my short-worded guide in
First movements by F.J. Haydn
