Meet and Greet

And so she merrily danced.
Amidst the falling rain.
And I surreptitiously glanced.
And looked on in vain.

Through the droplets.
Distracted by the anklets.
I saw layers of salt.
They glistened with a lightning bolt.

I clasped my chest and looked to sit.
Passers-by thought I had a fit.
It was true grit; though.
More than a ligament took a blow.

And technology took a back-seat.
As Snails became hard to beat.
Scarcity prevails when I want to eat.
An utter rarity to meet and greet.
