Venus In Furs

Venus In Furs

It was a night 
With much in sight 
And Ares danced
In Paris France

Temperatures were hot 
So no fox trot
Cannot do the rumba
Because of sidewalk gumba

A tango would sizzle
So leave it for drizzle 
To dance in puddles
With Gene Kelly cuddles 

Those disco nights 
would burst one’s tights 
And definitely no wind
To fly one’s kites

It’s quite the heat wave 
no night for a rave
Temperatures soar
like furnace roar

Humidity heat
To Dante’s inferno beat
A night to sweat 
Don’t walk your pet

Sidewalk egg will fry
And the hen will sigh
Fahrenheit is really high 
The fan will soon die

From overwork
It’s quite the quirk
Ice from soda jerk
Beams up James Kirk

A night you won’t forget
Like a Hellbound jet
Sauna rooms to let
Still vacant yet

And so Ares does dance
In Paris France
Minus his pair of pants
Saying take a chance

Meanwhile in her room 
On a night of doom 
Aphrodite wears 
More than perfume

Greek goddess Aphrodite goes totally insane:

Venus in furs

    Cannot do the rumba
    Because of sidewalk gumba…and my most intelligent comment is YOWZA!

      And as Howard Cosell might phrase it, “When you saw Venus in furs, you were doing the yowza in your trousa.”

    I love this one, Christopher. It’s truly vivid with jumps and dances.

    I love this, “A tango would sizzle

To dance in puddles

      Thank you.

      That’s my favourite line in the poem too. ❤

      I felt particularly inspired writing that line.
