The Dance

Round and round in dust they twirl

Dancing duelers, lives unfurl

“Ole Ole,” fans adore

“Ole Toro”, the crowds roar 

Diablo negro, we must vie

For this day you surely die

A cape whips, a glint of red

Dance matador, or drop dead 


An example of the quadrille,

    (One thing – Bjorn asked in his prompt that the word ‘dance’ be used with an object. You used it twice but neither has an object after it. You might want to make a subtle change somewhere. Feel free to delete my comment.)

    Ole! Great take on the prompt! “Round and round in dust they twirl Dancing duelers, lives unfurl..” Sets the scene so well. Really enjoyed this unique one! Nicely done.
