Spinning round and round and round,
Where to go now?
here and there,
reddened faces coming and going,
collisions and confusion reign;
always returning somehow to the same face.
Then retracing the steps,
frantically trying to keep up;
and then back once again,
confusion is doubled,
only by good fortune is disaster averted.
Strip The Willow is a bewildering dance to the uninitiated!
