lily’s lawn wedding

the guests arrived

at half-past five
and we were half-past ready
we hadn’t laid the linens out
and no one could find teddy
the tents were half-mast standing up
and half-fast falling down
and something spilled
and left it’s mark
on lily’s wedding gown
so how to keep them entertained
and where was the food and what if it rained
amy sang a little tune and andy did a dance
that wasn’t bad, surprisingly,
considering the circumstance
then momma served her famous punch
–we hoped that all the guests had lunch–
and they drank up and in a flash

the wedding was a smash

  1. I tried to think of a poem for this prompt, but it just wasn’t working for me. I’m glad I didn’t. I like what you came up with better. You really captured the chaos of weddings. Well done!
