Sometimes You Just Have To Dance With Jane Fonda.

Look at the art

not to the artist,

for the polarising view

of half the population

will have you believe

that you are dancing with Jane Fonda

under a star filled night sky

and the siren of the 60s screen

is dressed like Barbarella; whilst

others will have you convinced that

Hanoi Jane is leading you astray,

not realising the implications

of both and one and the same.

Look to the art and not the artist they say,

yet deep down, I would still dance

the night away, under a tarpaulin painted sky

with Jane Fonda.
