The Social Distance Tango by Stan Phillips All that I ask dear Is you take off your mask dear For I want a little more As we move around the floor
While we're dancing the social distance tango It's a shame that I cannot see your face Just because of the interminable space That lies between us Like Mars to Venus As we're dancing the social distance tango
And oh for the touch of your hand dear
So let the music play
I know that would be oh so grand dear.
As we struggle through another day
But though it's a disgrace
Though the politicians try us
The rules are in place
We'll not be killed off by a virus
As we dance to the social distance tango
While we're dancing the social distance tango So get your best dance frock out For all the six week lock out.
And let the music play Throughout the livelong day The virus won't defeat us And Covid cannot beat us While we're dancing the social distance tango Ole!! Stan Phillips is an 80 year old poet, musical podcast maker, part-time wannabe male model, and occasional stand up comedian. “I used to be a psychotherapist/counsellor when I had an honest job. I was born into prewar London, and attended 17 schools (my father believed they couldn’t hit a moving target) and I eventually finished up here in Ireland. Still wondering what I will be when I grow up — but enjoying writing my quirky poetry as I do so.” Discover more about Stan on Mom’s Favorite Reads website: https://moms-favorite-reads.com/moms-authors/stan-phillips - 84 -
