There being people very modest
There being people very ostentatious.
There being people in between the two
borrowing something from modesty
and plucking the rest from ostentation
finally ending up in a fiasco
landing in non body’s land
sad and sorry through the programs.
A friend of mine was not seen for sometime
A few days after he came to meet me
Probing over found out he had celebrated
the wedding of his son with few guests.
Feeling a little angry for not inviting me
asked the reasons for holding it so private.
Hee said too many guests and too much preparations
would spoil the solemnity and sanctity of the wedding.
Another incident gave a different experience altogether
An invitation printed grandly with decorations all over
soliciting to grace the Diamond Wedding Anniversary celebrations
With the curiosity to find what they do and how they work out
went ahead of time and saw the extensive elaborate arrangements.
The pains they had taken and the efforts they have put across
became so tiring the couple lost their cheer and glow
remaining in anticipation as how the occasion is going to go about.
The two opposite episodes in equations different
proposed a deliberation profound and necessary.
If privacy is knocked down by public interference
the decorum gets eschewed in a way prolific.
There be a demarcation between the two
while weddings bring joy to the couple
there be minimal invitees to wish then well
and the comfort and liberty should be theirs.
