La Gaudiere

rebellion

Maybe it was the summer heat

a perceptible shift from the mundane

maybe it was the summer heat

 

first attempts washed away the stain

a tentative push toward rebellion

a perceptible shift from the mundane

 

tired of leaning backwards, of the Machiavellian

a nudge to stiffen the spine and vent

a tentative push toward rebellion

 

partial became whole with each voice of dissent

even the timid found smiles as they set to oppose

a nudge to stiffen the spine and vent

 

A chorus of voices — oh, how it rose

collective power under that blazing sun

even the timid found smiles as they set to oppose

 

a spark to set that fire, not to be undone

collective power under that blazing sun

Maybe it was the summer heat

Maybe it was the summer heat
