2 Square Highland(s) Folk

I have a great plan

For Saturday night

Don’t be a stranger

Don’t put up a fight


I was thinkin’ of  music

& Ms. Tammy Mauck

Waltzin’ Mathilda

Don Gato did rock!


But the very best part

(And, I’m sure you’ll agree…)

Was when we paired off

Hopefully, one chose ME.


And soon we were forming

Four big square pods

And inside those units

(Or was it four pair of quads?)


First couple to my left

(Well I can’t remember…)

But I can do si do

Allemande has no gender


So back to what’ prior

This tortuous drill

Were we sat and we waited

A ‘pre dance card’ thrill


of hope or rejection

When boys came around

Some numbered order

And squeaked out this sound…


Will YOU be my partner?’

And here, we first learned

To look forward to things

Now We seem to have spurned


But here once again

I’ve turned to the dark-side

So I will now focus

So time hits my Mark (Hyde?)


So, I saw this great place

I think off of Stone

Where they dance all in squares

(I’m hearing you groan)


I mean it now ‘Fren’…

(‘Course I won’t tell others…’)

But it rhymes with Cen

‘Hard “c”‘ has two brothers


I’ll ask around

Do a bit of research’ing

You can drink beer

(But please….no lurching…)


Your Combat boots fine

I have a nice frock

We don’t need to match

Just channel Ms. Mauck.


And, seriously Ken..

If we dance out our issues

We’ll perspire it “gone!”

(& I’ll bring some tissues)


And then we can eat…

more as food, today’s “goal”

I think Brother John’s

Has some ribs with some soul.


Highlands-pair…We’ll March On

For we do love You, Food.

& If you mess up a little,

I’ll try NOT to be rude.


Will be fun, holding hands

T’least to whip you around

No, that’s not what I mean

I won’t make a sound…


Though I do have a tangent

About the ‘big Hat’

Once up in Dodge

Wuz  whare we wuz at.


At the rodeo-‘Rena

(S’cuze ‘Larry’ twang)

Paired horses with Riders

square ridin’  their thang…


It was horses & Fun…

-All kicking together

And on top of these horses

People paired, mounting Leather…


If only we’d taken

This time at the Ranch

Marriage Improvement

The Work and The Dance


So if you come visit

(And I’ll stay in my chair…)

Hoping compadre

Finds me to Pair…


Seriously, it will be a blast

And We can Rock this House….


Highlands School we Love You

As time goes Marching By

We’ll Keeeep Your Flag on Hiiiiigh…!

Thank you for the beautiful birthday flowers.
