Pablo Picasso's Old Guitarist

Every day same humdrum
Xanten guitars monotonously strum
All must hate routines
Stereotypical ways are umpteen
Pray may I break
Ever I can't take
Roads beaten and worn
Annoyed, I have sworn
Thinking out of the box
Irritating it is I coax
Out with the old
New is real gold

A personal Note:
 I was at a Karaoke night in Goa some years ago. I  remember that night I was extremely exasperated with the way I had spent my day explaining my creative inputs as the Interior Designer of a project that I was working on. A Bavarian troupe was singing at the Karaoke and they actually helped me forget my woes. :)

In the above acrostic I talk about a Xanten (German/Bavarian province) guitar that monotonously strummed which wasn't the truth. It is most unfair of me to mention it this way for this acrostic has been written in memory of that night when I'd fallen in love with those gorgeous German voices..:)

This has been written for the Acrostic Only Prompt # 11
