Boogie Woogie

Boogie Woogie

A Chapter by Dave Brown

all night long


I put a poem in my wallet

Then sat down for lunch

And as I settled there, in my chair

I heard a loud crunch


Then funny things

All started to happin

A buncha poem-y type words had fallen

And they were doing some dancin


Then my wallet joined them

And all were dancin around

But for some reason

The waitress had frowned


She didn’t recognize the music

So, all the letters filled her in

And for all the rest of the night

We were all a-boogie woogie-in

Clearly this is autobiographical, since you are chronically prolific. There must be poems & letters & words & paragraphs & rhymes bursting out of your every orifice, not just your wallet, judging from the massive anthologies you've posted here at the cafe. Too bad your poem fails to make a connection between ARTISTRY & your WALLET ($$$$$) . . . might as well boogie woogie with our words since nobody is filling our wallets for a chance to read them! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I think you should go into the 'will supply comment' business.

A livelier, more colorful process than most.
Delightful, cartoonish imagery.
Entertaining read!

even those busted up poems deserve a bit of fun
Ok. I think it's a bit before my time but wasn't there a song about boogie boogie dancing shoes?
I want to find that song now! Glad the night ended on the right note here.

Lol! : )
not a bad way to spend a 'boogie' night although she was probably more interested in her tip than the poesy. i'm wondering if anyone got 'tipsy' during all that dancing. you've weaved a cute, clever little tale here, complete with platform shoes. you just can't keep a good poem down. now you've got me watching boogie videos/songs ... :)

Giggling here.....a dancing wallet and dancing words? Well, of course the waitress joined in. She wanted a decent tip! :) This is just adorable and I could picture it all in my mind. Great work. Lydi**
