Danseuse Divine - Part the First

She slipped into the ballroom Shimmied across the floor Bobbed a graceful curtsy Slid quickly through the door Leaving some mixed reactions From all those gathered there First time they’d seen a tango With the artiste totally bare And it’s not the sort of thing One ever ever expects to be seen At an Official Civic Reception For Her Majesty the Queen And certainly not in Bolton Not even as a merry jest Especially when entertaining Hordes of other Royal Guests Though some few unkind people Thought the Duke wanted more Insisting they heard that personage Murmuring encore encore encore The palace issued a strong denial An apology came from Tony Blair Seen as rather ridiculous As he wasn’t even there The Heir was rather annoyed Because he hadn’t been invited On that special day that the Mysterious woman was sighted Somewhere up near Wigan The dancer read her press Already preparing for her Next appearance sans any dress
