    I’ve been dancing for seventeen years
    And its time I addressed all my fears.
    I’ll go pro! Show my belly!
    Start to teach! Get on telly!!
    And ignore the advice of my peers.

    A dancer with steps bold and certain
    Emerged from behind the stage curtain,
    But failed to observe
    The cut and the curve
    Of the footlights, and went for a Burton!

    My teacher’s advice I long scorned.
    Bad technique was what I performed.
    But today on the stage
    I heard someone rage;
    “You’re under arrest! You were warned!”

    Then I noticed this loud mouthed show stopper
    Had a truncheon and handcuffs all proper
    Diamonte encrusted.
    Good Lord! I’ve been busted
    By a well equipped Bellydance copper!!

    Oh teacher, my brain it is hurtin’
    These moves I find most disconcertin’.
    My hips I put there,
    But my arms - they go where?
    And my weight distribution’s uncertain!

    Oh student, please stop calculating.
    Just free style to my formulating:
    Melt into the style,
    Keep firm all the while,
    And think about not concentrating!

    A Belly Dancer whose skin was so pale
    That she had to hide behind her veil
    Said the sound guy Dan,
    'Forget about a tan
    People who don't like you should be in jail!'

    Oh doctor, please can you prescribe me
    With potions and pills that will find me
    Awakened next day
    My pains gone away
    And my body lean, healthy and lively?

    Oh patient, your hopes are bizarre.
    Beyond my credentials by far.
    But here, what I’ll do
    Is prescribe this for you -
    Six weeks at a Bellydance Spa.

    In dance I embody ‘the other’.
    I connect to The Ancestral Mother.
    So I’ll go to the East
    (For a fortnight at least),
    And my spiritual path I’ll discover.

    So I booked up a flight and arrived
    In a mystical Eastern seaside.
    And I searched through the streets
    Seeking dancers to meet,
    ‘Oh where are my sisters!’ I cried.

    I wandered the souks and bazaars,
    Looked in cafes and small coffee bars.
    Asked each woman I met
    “Do you dance?” - I regret
    Their answer was ‘No!’!’ That was hard.

    But at last I encountered a dancer,
    At the Hotel Nile ‘All Night Bonanza’.
    Dressed in sequins and glitz,
    I just hugged her to bits
    And explained how her dance was The Answer!

    I felt we had spiritually wed!
    But she listened, and then shook her head,
    Took my arms off her waist
    And retreated with haste.
    Then paused, turned a moment, and said:

    “I don’t get all your mystical magic;
    How dance makes your soul feel ecstatic.
    I do it from need,
    My stomach to feed.
    No dance and I starve; and that’s tragic.”

    Oh how could my sister be blind
    To the spiritual source she could find?
    My dance makes me whole.
    Its food for the soul!
    Her comments were clearly unkind.

    As I travelled back home on my flight,
    I pondered the following plight:
    How the natives don’t seem
    To get what I mean.
    It's their dance, but surely I'm right?

    An impoverished dancer from Maine,
    Who hadn’t a cent to her name,
    Found living was stressful,
    But dancing quite blessfull
    And through it found fortune and fame.

    A teacher in bellydance class
    Slipped over and fell on her ass.
    But her pride was intact,
    For she knew for a fact
    That the worse they would do was just laugh.
