Oldies were new on the jukebox,
In the decade of the doo-wops.
Couples would jitterbug and jive,
Terpsichorean footwork’s drive.
Couples rocking around the clock
Keeping rhythm with the jukebox.
Rockin’ robin both night and day,
And rock and roll is here to stay.

This was written for dVerse’s Monday quadrille challenge, with the requirement of using the word “juke.” A quadrille is a poem having just 44 words. “Terpsichorean” is a great word, but it was also thrown in there in desperation to get exactly 44 words to fit my form. 😛
