An Ode to Disco

A chapter in the book OMG I wrote a poetry book

Jive Talkin'

by Earl Corp

Disco Inferno Poem Contest Winner 
I know it’s been said,

That disco is dead,

Tho It may be in the past,

But not so fast,

Whats’ that sound

Let’s Turn the Beat Around,
When I put on my Boogie Shoes,
I just can’t lose,

This ain’t no jive,

I Will Survive,

No time for a wife,

I Love the Nightlife,

That girl is pretty swell,

She Rings My Bell,

Don’t want no tussle,

I just want to Hustle,

If you want to play,

Come on down to the Y.M.C.A.,

Maybe if I have the Last Dance,

She’ll give me a chance,

This could be tough,

I’m dealing with some Hot Stuff.

She said no kinda  mean,

She thinks she’s a Dancing Queen,

She actually called me a geek,

In reality I’m a Super Freak,

What’s this I’ve seen,

It’s the Dancing Machine Billie Jean,

I’m not taking a dive,

I am here  Stayin Alive.

You might think disco sucks,

But we all have an inner Disco Duck,

This is the longest poem I've ever written. I took advantage of the no style clause. You true poets are going to hate this no meters and forced rhymes, but that's ok I can't get better without feedback. Have at it people.
