                                                                         Hand jive

took patty cake to the box outside,

bones focused on agreed precision

Kick, open, side to side,

Hand jive

Eye contact key to  artistry,

Rhyme breathes rhythm alive with limbs

A living game of poetry,

Hand jive

rhythmic playtime with recess friends,

audience judges, waiting next

miss a beat, begin again.

brisk hop over hot clothes line

daring flips inside hot whips

wonderland between turned twine
