BLUE AND WHITE AND RED

A backward clown goes peddling by
On a tricycle
The rain returning to the sky
The waning moon grows full
And with the actor's cue
He recedes from view
The curtain falling is Blue and White and Red

A boat is drifting out to sea
Retreating from the shore
Heeding dated sirens' calls
Pulled by unmanned oars
A statue mouths goodbye
She’s 50 meters high
She’s all lit up in Blue and White and Red

A finger presses down rewind
On Independence day
A gasping crowd views a reverse
Fireworks display
Everything we knew
Is fading now from view
The flag that’s furling is Blue and White and Red
