Zazous~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Jazz Swing Dance Couple”
Artist Unknown

thumbing their noses
at Vichy and Boche
they put swing in their step
jazz lingo their tosh

these young disaffected
escaped from the jaws
of their cultural vise
tightly turned by war’s claws

soft rebellion of minds
in iconoclast clothes
dancing their taunts
in closed cellar club shows

their dissident spirit
persists to this day
among those deep offended
by political sway
