Dance Party Fun

Tammi Belko

We dance with no technique
purely wild abandon,
there’s really no mystique,
head-banging, body rockin,
chasing a mad shimmy
across the kitchen floor
Alexa belting music from … the 80’s?
No worries,
my kids can groove
raised on a variety of smashing tunes —
Rock n roll, alternative, and musicals swoons.
We can dance and sing
“Mama Mia” & “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Without pause, quite amazing actually
We dip and skip and sash shay away
push those blues to another day
Without a doubt, we are crazy family.
