Jazz Band in Jeopardy!

Tervuren's roundabout's a blast!
Since 2005 cars rush on past
Concentric circles washed with spray
A finely choreographed display!

Behold Bandundu's Beastly Band!
Where Congo creatures prance and stand
Playing jazz while fountains flow
Tom Frantzen's genius on show!

Though this fun artwork is well known
Friday* turned the scene to stone
The fountains froze hard in mid flow
A winter frieze few locals know.

What must those crocodiles have thought
With the saxophone a moment caught
By "Beast-of-the-East's" bold claws
Quite frozen solid out of doors?
