PARTY IS OVER





PARTY IS OVER


Everyone's left,
Slipped off into dreams.
Unreachable now,
In their waters of sleep.

Bottles, half-necked
And lipsticked butts,
Echoes of laughter,
Floating in smoke.

Lights switching off,
The dawn oozing in.
And wind reminds breeze,
There's a tide to turn.

Put back on your hat,
Straighten your tie,
Get ready your oars,
As the boatsman sings hoarse:

'Hoist high sails of memory,
Patchworked by heart,
New journey, new party,
First, a toast to the last.'

'New journey....
New party ....
First a toast ....
To the last ....!'
