it is the laughter
worries that are forgotten
memories that are made
and goodbyes that may mark a beginning
have you bitten behind backs
or called a spade by its name- spade?
where your mind has been the drafter,
what has your mouth been printing?
the gathering is over – what is after?
are you who the society chooses to see
or your willing-to-learn true self stayed?
is it a lie or you are truly winning?
after the gathering, do you go home happy
or as a man who owed nothing but paid?
