What keeps me happy and well is poetry and dancing.

       Why I Dance…

you’re a great dancer people often say
at the end of my day a Friday or a Saturday night usually, but it can be open-mike Wednesday or jazz Thursday.
You’re a fantastic dancer people often say I say because I did it my way, I never learnt to dance
I dance from the heart. I dance because you want to, but are afraid to.
I dance because you want to jiggling your knee or tapping the table with your hand.
I dance because there is a good band.
I dance to make the whole world happy
I dance because I have such energy
I dance because the globe is dancing all cultures and I am free like you want to be.
I dance because the globe is spinning, and I can feel it.
I dance because I feel cosmic and oh so very alive.
I dance because it is the end of strife, for me and you.
I dance because whilst I’m mostly happy most of the time, I dance because I’m blue.’

I dance because I know I am only one form of dance – my dancing I never learnt to – I dance because you wanna.
I dance because there are  Asian dancers, Latin dancers, Continental dancers, and the whole world wants to be happy.
I dance to make people free eee eee
I dance to make people laugh, I prat-dance especially to the humorous and daft speedy songs. I dance because I heard a song #I write the songs I write the songs to make the whole world sing, I sing to make the whole world cry.# I dance just because he wrote that song.
I dance because dance is life, life is art art is dance,. I dance because I feel goo-ood like James Brown# and Dr Feel-Good, I dance because I have red blood.
I dance because I am young still at 50 years.
I dance because life has soul, and the blues I dance because I’m full of juice./
I dance because there is rock, rap, reggae, blues, soul, and jazz, grunge, thrash, metal, and heavy metal too.
I dance to uplift your soul, for you to feel gratitude for all that’s good in life.
I dance because there is more than enough stress, work and strife, and because only a few lucky ones have a job they enjoy and this is their leisure time now. I dance because I can leap, Kung Fu and Pow!,
#everyone was kung fu fighting, it was fast as lightning#.
I dance because I am still a child, a big one, and your a big kid too.
I dance and skip hardly ever trip.

Zippity zip zip zip.

I dance for your inner child to be free. To be carefree footloose limb-loose and happy. Heart mind free.
I dance because freedom is the most important thing, as well as compassion too.

I dance for me for you and you

I dance because David Bowie’s put on yer red shoes and dance , I must buy some red shoes
I dance just because I enjoy dance
#I dance for its own sake.
I dance because Roxy Music says so and was made for dancing
I dance because of reggae music and Michael Jackson.
I dance in the St in my ghetto of Holbeck and the kids are bored
I dance because of the song #dancing in the street#
I dance I play I speed up and away. I dance because it makes everyone’s day.
I dance because I know you cant resist me me and my joy. I dance because I feel friendly,
I dance because I want the whole world to have an orgasm of joy.
I dance because I want to the whole world to be happy and joyful.
I dance because I want world peace and music and dance were are my first languages
I dance because words can be a pain in the neck.
My body is my words, my flow is my body my body is life and undulating river.
I dance for freedom I dance for joy.
I dance to reach nirvana for unlimited, ultimate freedom and joy, until the joy juice oozes out of you
I dance because I can dance and that’s not a boast.
I dance because you are simply the best.
