War dance or red romance
‘A duel’s sure overdue’,
Some viewers might so view.
But is not a duel some kind of dance?
— War dance and dark shade of red romance,
Skies are dark, grey or blue.
Poet’s note: A limerick here where 3rd and 4th lines are one foot longer than the other three, contrary to its normal format…. I happened to see a picture* of two ants on a rope facing each other. Are they ready to fight or are ready to romance? It inspired me to pen this limerick.
