I Danced With The Devil

by Chuck RitenouR

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done for love?

Savanna had one request. “Daddy”,she said." I know how you feel, please dance with Mom at my wedding reception. It would mean so much to me."
For fifteen years, her mother and I had communicated with each other through our attorneys.
She was standing beside her newest boyfriend when I asked her to dance.We nervously held each other and slow danced. I said, “You are the second prettiest woman here tonight” and to me it was the truth. I was struck by the job this woman had done raising our daughters while busting my balls every inch of the way.
In my arms on the dance floor, she seemed to change and I began to remember that I once loved this woman. As the song came to a close, she smiled and said, " I hope you remembered to bring your damned check book." It was a bitter sweet moment I will never forget. At Savanna’s wedding reception, I danced with the Devil. I did it for love

Yo Chuck! I'm afraid...I know what you mean! But I brought you a poem suitable for the occasion:

I hate dancing with Satan!

He always leads!

All the while,

on your soul, he feeds!

The worst about dancing,

Satan's Dance,

Is definitely that -

he doesn't wear pants!

But how I love,

to hear him wail!

Every time-

I step on his tail!
