On Your Own

You can dance to your own rhythm, sure you can,
it is not too difficult I have seen it frequently done;
there is nothing better than doing things your way
and starting off alone on a long deserted highway.

He who goes by himself gets there soon and fast
while he who waits for the others gets there last;
there are times when it works best to be an island
if the point is to get ahead of the rest of the band.

While there is no question it takes two to tango,
why must we necessarily wish to do the tango?
we can sway just as well with our own shadow
to keep us company with the lights turned low.

Yes, you can dance to the tune, on your own!

    lol Sean, I wish I could sit in a nice lively pub, and have a pint with you, and laugh my ars off. lol Yes, Fred Riverdance within the deep end may also prove quite humerous...make sure to keep your swimming cap on though, you would not want to mess your hair. lol seriously, great poem - I have always danced to my own tune! Love Kristin

    Oh Fred, what would we do without Sean??? He is the sun on a cloudy day! The light in the darkness! Of course you can dance on your own! Except maybe the samba, that might look a little strange. But Riverdance - I can just see you (on the shallow end of course) dancing your little heart out! Muahahhahahahaha!!! Sorry Fred, this is too funny! Sean's fault. : ) Hugs, me xoxo
