This poem was inspired by the Three Things Challenge set by Theresa the Haunted Wordsmith, It’s great to see her back.
Today’s things are: flower pot, stereo instructions, dancer
Plus the Word of the Day: Bravado
and Fandango’s Word: Reflex.
The Greatest Dancer
I am the greatest dancer
when I have had a few
Like a noble pony prancer
you’ve seen nothing like I can do
I give it everything I’ve got,
with a bravado something keen
around a handbag, or flower pot
with a passion, you’ve never seen.
They tell me, I’m something great,
when I get out on the floor,
I kick my feet and while I gyrate,
everyone else runs out the door.
I have a reflex like a cat,
that’s what one survivor said
though he was a bit delirious
when I accidentally kicked him in the head.
So let me put on my favourite songs
I know that there’ll be major ructions
an exodus of desperate throngs
as I reach for the stereo instructions.
