Y for Yo-Yoing

She’s always lived in the small town on a highway.
It has one set of traffic lights and little action.
For one year she stands near the lights,
spinning the yo-yo up, then down.
As time goes, she has difficulty when cars approach 
The move called ‘sleeping yo-yo’ works best 
When there are no vehicles about. 
So she changes her tactic

During the frequent gaps in the traffic 
She reels off a song as she performs, 
Playing ‘round the world’ motions
When lights go red, she steps out
humming in rhythm 
with her yo-yo
until the lights 
go to green.
