Rhythm in Black and Blue

Rhythm in Black and Blue

Roughened black feet 
In white pleather sandals
Pound bumpy grey asphalt
As the long rainbow rope
Swings around
And around
"Lady on one foot 
One foot
One foot"
"She can weeble
She can wobble
She can do the twist
But I bet you $5 
That she can't do this"
Braids with beads
Bounce in rhythm 
To the feet 
And the words
And the
Slap
Slap
Slap
Of the rope
As it swings
Slap
Over their heads
And under their feet
And gleaming white teeth
Are shown in grins
As lips 
Sing songs of
"Down in the valley
Where the green grass grows"
Two ropes whizzing
Over shiny heads
And swifter feet
Of the double dutch girls
And voices harmonize
With giggles and shouts
As each girl waits 
Her turn to be that
"Lady on one foot
One foot
One foot"
As the ropes
Swing
Slap
Swing
Slap
Swing
Slap
