dancing fool

your mama sings songs and your pappy hunts fish
you ain’t known a gallop ‘cept its name was gish
you shot your bolt on the 4th of july
when they caught you dancing in the hurricane’s eye
now i swear true blind that i know you well
since we fought together ‘gaint the northman’s hel
and you told me then and you’re telling me still
that if i don’t dance then my poetry will

    • Thanks 😀 Initially I was just going to call it “dancing” but I found I’ve already used that title, so “dancing fool” popped into my head, and you’ve just shown me why it did 😀
