Known As A Wedding

It is graceful to witness
the marriage of two
individuals. A milestone
in their life, one of rejoice.

Weddings expose a glamour
The talk focuses not on the merits
but revolves on how many gathered?
how were the arrangements?

which goes on for days
the feelings of the wedded
remain unseen, the event
is eulogized.

The ostentation robs
the sanctity. How many
in the crowd have a good
heart? Difficult to answer.

A display of wealth a
show of status
marks the occasion. Weddings
turn a disenchanted illusion.
