Memory of Liberty

  Memory of Liberty

  Ballroom entanglements of crush induce dancers,
  Flouncing hem of skirt of my lady the Royal Queen,
  Wavy as ocean, swiveling and sweeping in spiraling
  concerto,
  The sea of floating headgears bobbing up at the simms,
  Footfalls on the parade paved hill tarmac of many
  destinies,
  Lives held in captivities in the jaws of colonial
  metropolitan,
  Imploding, searchlight to conquer the fun-fare frontiers,
