Finally leaving the stage after
Twenty seven encore calls
A huge sense of elation as
The last curtain finally falls.
There's all the media interviews
That she has yet to face
Then perhaps she can retreat
For a while to her private space.
Treated like minor Royalty
When she visited her mum
Back home in Barnsley after
She'd danced the Sugar Plum
Meets with the Toreador
To world wide praise and acclaim
Boosting the popularity of Ballet
To make her a well known name.
They called if Ballet meets Martial Arts
In its brand new and radical form
With just a little adjustment period as it
Settles down beside the accepted norm.
She's toured the cultural centres
Of the whole of the civilised West
Where her radical performances
Have Easily passed the quality test.
She's contemplating retirement
Doesn't want to tour anymore
Would really like to settle down
With her beloved Toreador.
The Arts world is in turmoil
As it enters the current century.
It's as though it's been released from
A hidebound cultural penitentiary.
They've all had to put away
Their rose tinted glasses
As this new art form is welcomed
By the uncultured masses.
To be fair they are trying
To do their very best.
Grand Opera meets Wrestling
Is soon to be put to the test.
