Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

Fat Tuesday

 Fat Tuesday 

An afterthought of

A party on a Tuesday.

Discarded into a gutter

Like a cigarette butt or a used condom

In this time of excess.

Radiant as I was when

I adorned a face.

Now, I lie in the damp

Muck of this endlessly sinking

City which will fall like Sodom and Gamora

One day due to its sins.

My plumage once like a peacock

Is now sullen and dank as the sewer

I’m stuck in.

Do no weep for me my brethren

Though for I had my chance in

The sun, to romp through a

Day where excess is all.

A day before prayer and ash

Are used to make saints.

However, I was beautiful, and

Now, though forgotten, had a glorious day.
