Jouvet

Surrender to it,
Flow with it,
Move with it.
Drift on the breeze created by the vibration of speakers,
Sway in time with the beat of the drums,
Move, move, move
Be moved by the
Tinka tink tink of the iron band
Giggle and jive
Come alive to the sweet mosaic thrum
Of old oil drums
Battered and beaten
Abused into submission
The fate we escaped by emancipation
Give in and let it take you
From tip of toe to sweaty brow
The glorious puns of the benna men
The better men
The artistic wordsmiths
The literary Picassos
The endangered ones
Beat the rhythm with your feet
Make the earth tremble
Wake her up
And let the sweat soak her
Like it did back then
Only now let it be
Because we are free
Free to be more than our labels
Move … I said MOVE
Sway and soar,
On the currents of our passion,
Let go, let it go
Heart exploding,
Passion built and exploded
And exposition of the times
We dance in the streets
We celebrated
We danced
We’re free.

    “Beat the rhythm with your feet
