                  Balancing Act          



                                                   keeping  him

                                         off balance is an easy

                                       thing to do            when

                                        he  asks        please pass my

                                         socks         she hands to him

                                           a shoe      his face turns odd

                                             and quizzical     not knowing

                                     what to do           yet when she asks

                                the sum of party’s  respondez  vous       he

                            tells her not to worry        there are just a  few

                            when in fact they number    one  hundred

                             thirty  two                keeping her off

                                 balance  is not hard     and

                                        nothing   new
