Boom-boom base balanced blast,
Pulsating pace, palaver passed,
Click-clack cameras caution cast,
Flick-flack faces flickering fast.
Fat funky fellow’s fox trot fails,
Willy-nilly wallower woefully wails,
Tittle-tattle two-steppers tell tall tales,
Heave ho! Haranguer hackney-cab hails.
Chirpy chirpy cheap chicks cha-cha-cha,
Haughty “Hooray” Henries ha-ha-ha,
Yap-yap yodeller yelps ya-ya-ya,
Tap-dancer taps tat-ta-tat-ta-tat-ta..
Puffing-panting policeman politely prancing,
Chattering champagne Charlie cautiously
chancing,
Everybody elevates, enhancing,
Da-de-da-dar-da-de-do-dar dapper damsel
disco dancing
Haphazard hip-hoppers happily howl,
Flip-flop footballer follows fowl,
Gargling gargantuan grumbles growl,
Plip-plop plumber’s passions prowl.

Summer Skin
Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin
I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin
On the night you left I came over
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
Cause the season's change was a conduit
And we'd left our love in our summer skin
Take out your homework!
Say to them,
Say to the down-keepers,
The sun-slappers
The harmony-hushers.

Finally stops sputtering
And plash!
