WILL YOU DANCE A LITTLE FASTER

This is parody/a shadow poem of
The Lobster Quadrille by Lewis Carroll


By Josie Whitehead

Will You Dance a Little Faster

'Will you dance a little faster,'

      Said a belle unto her beau.

'Your waltz has only two beats

      And your foxtrot’s rather slow.'

 

'But my tango’s more than stylish

     And just watch this pirouette! –'

'Now, don’t do something silly dear.

      Stick with the minuet.'

 

'I have noticed rather lately 

      That you step more on my toes,

But perhaps you cannot see too well

     To dance those do-si-dos

 

You need rhythm for your dancing 

     And should move to match the beat.

Perhaps dancing’s rather tricky

     For a man with two left feet..
