Bastille Day Band

Sun punishes the makeshift promenade
Band played under a bit of shade
To clapping spectators
Scattered about
Under the noontime sun
Not as many as the night before
That is to be expected
In the hot bright light
But if anything
This collection
Guitar
Keys
Fiddle
Accordion
Hurdy gurdy
Are more lively
More better
Than the standard foursome
Who closed down the show
The night before
Couples brave the hot sun
Bouncing
Dancing
Sweating up a storm
Fueled
By fast paced French
Hovering above belted tunes
This joyous Bastille Day
