After the Rock Concert is Over

   The heights were reached 

         with the help of hasheesh

but the dancing and 

    the sound 

has stopped 

   The crowd in the park 


and silence takes over 

    once again 

   Do you sincerely believe 

that all pain 

    was negated by the deafening sound? 

Well, it was great 

    but one must answer to fate

    This makes me think of the first of July, after the fire works are spent and the tired heads straggle home with their worn lawn chairs, and glow in the dark bracelets, yes, one must answer to fate my dear, you say it well in these few lines, who knows, what is in store, tomorrow, we'll soon find out, love, and hugs xxx
