Mambo No. 5 #Tanka #Poetry

A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

Surfwear label Mambo sold to US firm

Sharper than a serpent’s tongue, tighter than a bongo drum, quicker than a one night stand, slicker than a mambo band. ā€“ Don Henly

Phono Terpsichore,

One-step, giants leap mankind,

Apathy deplore,

Who you know gavotte streamlined,

Mumbo meagrely crore abhor.

He actually wasn’t too bad. For a big cat doing the mambo. – Author: Shelly Laurenston
