Dancers and Instructors at Harvey Zumbathon in Round Rock, TX

by R. L. Copple – 9/4/2017

The call goes out, “It’s for a good cause: to aid the victims of Harvey.”

We know there are those suffering from the storm, so no one complains.

Shirts are soaked; spinning bodies sling salty liquid through the air.

Then the song starts innocently enough with a touch-step and shout.

In the end we raised over twenty eight hundred—will we be back for Irma?
