Friday Fun: Shakespearean Hokey Pokey

You geeks. I love you. Only you would rewrite the hokey pokey in Shakespearean prose. And make it AWE-(wait-for-it)-SOME.

Full text:
The Hokey Pokey Shakespearean Style
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.
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from heaven's yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt
Verily I say, 'tis what it's all about.
This little piece of Epic covered in Awesomesauce appeared on Shakespeare Tonight's Facebook page earlier this week, though I found it via Geeks Are Sexy. (Yes, we are)

Happy Friday, geeks!
