Saw a community
rather a section of people
who were courteous and affable
with a smile writ large,
The face displayed a cordiality
The eyes did not reflect likewise but,
expressed a scorn and disdain
which lay beneath concealed.
Witnessed their exchanges in keen.
The camouflage was felt intermittent.
The celebration was a mere performance
where the ill will be suppressed by feigned goodwill.
Unable to comprehend I watched the show
with an amusement to an extent but,
with more of a bewilderment.
Perhaps, I am the one different from the crowd.
