dinner delight


It was a night of charm and delight

Friends, family – all within line of sight

Hypocritical grins and fake warm hugs

Some settled well, some seemed thugs

As they sat down to savor the feast,

The evil of envy – unleashes its beast

As it slowly raises its hood…

Conversations are more than ever misunderstood
Soon the acrid rebuttals lash across the table

The correctitude of the evening, so very unstable

The robust evening of joy from before,

Was sadly, no more.

    And worst is when some come to savour that envy.

    And why dinner delight when that seems to be the only thing missing from the menu?

    that’s romantic delight.
    how divine your word painting skills.

    keep it up,
    keep it coming.
