Featival Haiku - Notting Hill Carnival


Notting Hill Carnival
the old strive to
be young

Notting Hill Carnival
in a dance of flame
the young and old

Notting Hill Carnival
the old and young light up
the dance of flame

Notting Hill Carnival
the human physiques fired up
in a dance of flame

Notting Hill Carnival
in all shades the dancers
afired in spirit

Notting Hill Carnival
wanted a name change
Wonder Hill Carnival

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
