A Step Half Made

Oh, hopefully from this you'll know

As lightening shone and thunder blew

I danced the dance that dancers do


They danced it back and asked if I

Would mind them dancing through the night


I thought no harm could come of this

Besides, such company I’ve missed


Thus, on we danced so unaware

That torrent rains beyond compare


Fell down in floods on higher ground

And like a wall came crashing down


Then somewhere in a step half made

The dance I danced was washed away


Now all that’s left for you to see:

Remains of the catastrophe


Oh, hopefully from this you’ll know

Don’t ever dance when thunder blows

The End
