Dancin' Sue

There was a lady named Susan
Always worryin’, frettin’ and stewin’
Talkin’ woe is me’ to old man Lance
Who coaxed and cajoled her to dance

Lo and behold! They could cut a rug
Doin' the cha-cha and jitterbug
Soon the talk of the town
They danced every dance around

Smilin’ Sue found it all so confusin’
That grinnin’ Lance thought it all so amusin'

Susan, what a wonderful little ditty! It brought memories. At the age of 17 I, and my girl friend's sister won first place in a twist contest. Fifty years later, at the age of 67, my wife and I won first place in a twist contest. On my first date with her, we danced to Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. Today, at the age of 75, I still love to dance. So, if the Sue in your poem is you, NEVER QUIT DANCIN'!

lol Susan this fun piece made me smile. I'd classify it as rhyme as it doesn't fit the limerick form:-) hugs jan xx

When we dance it’s hard to fret. I think Lance was good medicine. I enjoyed this piece.
