Dance Fever

We dance to strains of music for the thrill
for when musicians play we feel the beat.
Great music is a balm for every ill.

Sometimes we dance until we feel the chill
and cringe because of numbness in our feet.
We dance to strains of music for the thrill.

Three times a week we hoof a practice drill.
We must prepare for soon we shall compete.
Great music is a balm for every ill.

Our mated moves require a heap of skill,
to master them makes us appear elite.
We dance to strains of music for the thrill.

Our perfect form could garner us a frill
at Silver Games; to win the Gold is sweet.
Great music is a balm for every ill.

Our troupe performs the dance without a spill
we bring our medals home clutched like a treat.
We dance to strains of music for the thrill.
Great music is a balm for every ill.

CONSUMING FAILURE

Consuming Failure


Pay heed the dancing chickens hot plate feet
lest you believe the music makes him strut
outrunning death by curried peppers sweet

the cooling of the iron his sole treat
keep moving to avoid the final cut
pay heed the dancing chickens hot plate feet

harsh tempo of perfections searing heat
obsession with the ifs, and whens, and buts
outrunning death by curried peppers sweet

performing in the hope of winning seat
an endless line that must remain uncut
pay heed the dancing chickens hot plate feet

there is in heated battle no retreat
for some the dancer’s door will soon slam shut 
outrunning death by curried peppers sweet

accept in simple failure your defeat
perfections long sought peak a muddy rut
pay heed the dancing chickens hot plate feet
outrunning death by curried peppers sweet
