The winning entry from the Washington Post Style Invitational contest
that asked readers to submit "instructions" written in the style of a
famous person - like W. Shakespeare, whose birth and death we celebrate this week:
Ye Olde Hokey Pokey
by Jeff Brechlin
O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke,

Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.

A great new spin on an old classic but it certainly doesn't sound like something my three year old niece should be doing!
