The Hokey Pokey by Jeff Brechlin in the Style of William Shakespeare (meme)

The Hokey Pokey by Jeff Brechlin in the Style of William Shakespeare

This poem of sorts be from the Washington Post Style Invitational contest which asked their readers to submit "instructions" for something (anything), yet to be written in the style o' a famous person.
The winning entry was the following: The Hokey Pokey (as written by William Shakespeare).

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 Heavens yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke — banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.
        — by "William Shakespeare"

Disclaimer: Hopefully, to the best of my current knowledge I've cited & credited the sources of these. If there are any inaccuracies, please comment them below.
Despite the popular meme trends of the Hokey Pokey Shakespeare meme of this poem, to my knowledge this was NOT written by William Shakespeare, but Jeff Brechlin for a contest in the Washington Post. 
If I have reported this incorrectly, I apologize. To my knowledge/research this seems to be the case.
I believe firmly in citing & crediting where it is due, and have not intentionally tried to commit any sort of wrong doing, nor ill will of either party mentioned. 
I merely liked the witty, quirky, creativity of the composition, and wished to share it.

Wuxia Inspired Preview

Chinese New year is coming up, so I did a Wuxia inspired photoshoot today.

I'm mentally & physically exhausted. I also did 3 conferences at the same time on speakerphone.
 I also made coffee, and soup at the beginning & end.

When I was done shooting, I still had a call going which went until way after 3PM, but I laid on my my bed with my eyes closed.

I will post some to my Boho BlackUniGryphon Blog, and the Pirate stuff here.
