Still Dancing as Fast as I Can

dancingshoesMy poem is sort of a twist on Aesop’s “Fox and the Grapes.”

Trying to Dance

I tried to dance but stubbed my toe

a very long, long time ago.

But since I really like to dance

I thought I’d take another chance.

I’m shocked my shoes no longer fit,

not even just a little bit.

I tried another larger pair

but soon the seams began to tear.

Found some that fit, but here’s the rub

another toe, another stub.

Not sure if I’ve been fairly fated,

I think that dancing’s overrated!
