September is greeted with bated breath
for the start of our annual dancing fix.
Saturday nights in take on new meaning
as all invitations are refused
to find us glued to ballroom scenes,
of rivalry, slips, dramas and smiles,
glamour in the briefest of costumes,
hunky chaps and chunky dames.
All the excitement chewed over and over
next day with friends and all week
at six on It Takes Two,
with learned discussions about the lambada,
the tango or somebody’s jive.
Christmas comes as an anti-climax –
it’s all over for another year –
by Boxing Day we won’t even remember who won.
