Party Time

Shards of balloons and

Strands of streamers

Strewed the floor

Remnants of the party

The night before

We trudge disconsolate

Begrudge the coming

Of the new day’s dawn

Clearing heads thick

With hangover from

Last night’s airy bubbles

A fairy crunches underfoot

Silver baubles slither hither

And thither kicked aimlessly

Around the room

Sight of uneaten vol-au-vents

Unappealing as last night’s curry

Stirs a slight queasiness

Coffee only is contemplated

Clearing up and out

Is the only timetable

You had to be there

Or be rectangular

Redress optional

Fun is done

The end

Nice poem Frank. Well described party time. The poem has the right sound and tone. Well done.

This disenchanted clip of the aftermath is easily one of your best, Frank. The title, with its positive connotation, complements the disillusionment perfectly.

Hello Frank,
