it being a gathering’ a meeting after a long time
relatives and friends getting together
could be termed as a reunion.
The convention aimed at kinship
where the forgotten faces would be seen
the memories long would be revived
inducting a bondage and rejuvenation.
This confluence fell short of its motives
being there not cordial exchanges
mostly there was a comparison
of who is rich and powerful.
The interaction as it would be
was about all the defaults in the other
that he not responding an invitation
calling him a sneak and head strong.
The amiability was not to be deciphered
with scorn and contempt scoring high percentile
the purpose of the confluence getting defeated
the dispersal became a source of energy.
The meeting came to an end
with the date being fixed for the next one
could hear many grumble and mumble
expressing their dissent in a murmur.
The get together as they are fashionably acclaimed
never brings in a togetherness
instead they ensue a chasm unexpected
that be of status, power and wealth.
