Hello, Everybody! I’m Stepping In!

I began with the Hungarian proverb “He’s dancing on the razor’s edge.” Needless to say, my search gave me entries about “Dancing With the Stars” and lyrics, and videos of and about “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and for some reason, an article about Prince Harry’s first trip to Rio. Here’s the result which is dedicated to my brother-in-law Jimmy Dorholt and great-uncle Johnny Doran, both professional dancers nonpareil–who both, actually, walked on the razor’s edge in one way or another! (My poem won’t print with the way some of the words were printed on the page for poetic effect.)

Hello, Everybody! I’m Stepping In

Natural cool!
Stick around
and see him
blossom!

Buy the ticket . . .
be in
the first
row!

He can
be
total class–
royal

or spark the
street
party spirit
of
Rio

Full of surprises
wowing crowds,
caught
and bowled
over!

He’s completely
torn up
the guidebook
And rewritten it
in his
own
style.

celebration!
Through his dancing shoes
he dazzles the crowd–

Playful,
playfully, playing
the people’s
pleasure!

Pigeon toes
(or
not)
he’s a
musical
master.

See . . . the music
through his
moves
Feel the music
fuze his
soul!

Energy energized–
as sexy as
a Samba
dancer,
his fever . . .
catches on.

Music flares
through
his body
flaming
into yours.

After dancing
dawn
to dusk,
he simply
walks
away

Though,
never-
ending,
as usual.

Jimmy,
Jimmy,
Jimmy. . .
Thanks. man.

Fun run–
You made
my day,
bro!
