O PROUD LEFT FOOT

by Steve Murray

Who amongst us could forget the famous “Hokey Pokey” and it’s Shakespearean parody “O Proud Left Foot”? With magical approach Steve Murray has set this whimsical semi-sonnet in an engaging a cappella Madrigal setting for SATB choir.

LYRICS

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 Heaven’s yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.

The Hoke, the poke — banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, ’tis what it’s all about.

poem by Jeff Brechlin
