Friday, March 30th, 2007

I was looking through some of these old entries–and trying not to be too disappointed by my lack of inspiration beyond anything of an automotive engineering nature–and found something of interest. I was reminded of the (presently abandoned) if_only_list and I discovered that I had written something else there which I had neglected to post here as well. So without further ado, here was my submission for the “I would dance” topic:

I would dance
on top of the world,

’20s gangster style
all booze and cigars and pinstripes,

a quick little jig to express my gratitude
for tommy guns
that turn G-men into dust
and Model A coupes
that leave the bodies in the dust.

I would dance
for fame and infamy,
for dames and broads,
for the chance to speak easy,

and for all the lives that I live in fantasy.
