“A Dancer Named (Hurricane) Katrina” by Kenny Fame

she danced by herself late one night
as if she moved to       her own     beat
un du la ting techniques    so tight
she danced by herself late one night
powerful movements    who    could fight?
Katrina’s reign / Naw lins’ retreats
she danced by herself late one night
as   if she    m o v e d  to      her   own      beat
