A shadow poem of The Lobster Quadrille
by Lewis Carroll
“Will you dance a little faster?”
Said a *belle unto her *beau.
“Your waltz has only two beats
And your foxtrot’s rather slow.”
“But my tango’s more than stylish
And just watch this pirouette –“
“Now, don’t do something silly dear –
Stick with the minuet.”
“I have noticed rather lately
That you step more on my toes,
But perhaps you cannot see too well
To dance those do-si-dos.
You need rhythm for your dancing
And should move to match the beat.
Perhaps dancing's rather tricky
*For a man with two left feet.”
