When Mama had parties to whirl, she left us at Auntie’s.
Didn’t she know Auntie had her own house jukes then?
Where were their steady, hard-working, non-drinking men?
Gramma and Grampa raised that platter way back when;
self-serving dances that taint through the generations.

We are celebrating the 10-year anniversary of dVerse, aka the poet’s pub, this week after having a 2-week vaca. I’ve got a whole roll of quarters in my pocket and am ready to start pushing buttons on the Wurlitzer.
Brian Miller is today’s Special Guest Host of dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Brian, who is one of the co-founders of dVerse, says:
Keep in mind your quadrille can be any style or topic. 44 words exact, not including the title[, using the word juke or some variation of the word juke.]
