The dancer

I told my enemy that

if I should out-live him

I would most surely

dance on his grave.

***

“Over my dead body you’ll dance!”

He exclaimed,

shaking with anger.

***

“That’s right” I replied.

***

And I outlived him,

and I danced on his grave.

Dear reader,

you have never

seen such grave dancing.

***

But here is the strange part,

for when I had finished,

I swear to you,

I thought I heard some muted applause.

***

I guess, in the end,

I will say this much for him,

I may not have liked him,

but the guy knew what was good.
