Standing On Ceremony


Standing On Ceremony (Randyjw; March 22, 2017)


The flower tossed and flung

with straight arm

crossed behind the crowd

and was lost as it hung

back behind the line

and was caught by



for the bouquet

to be shared

with some other

The tulip kissed

as it flew by air

and crushed by foot

as it fell to sole

the rose compared

by another name

a ruse is a ruse

by any other game
