The Hokey Pokey — 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.
From a Washington Post Style Invitational contest, that asked readers to submit instructions for something (anything), but written in the style of a famous person. The winning entry was The Hokey Pokey (as written by Shakespeare), written by Jeff Brechlin, of Potomac Falls, Maryland. Source.
