Moving Beyond Colonialism

Photo by riddhesh patil on Unsplash

When the smoke clears

The revelers find their slow ways home to lives

that are their own

When the battles are won

And the bets are off

The victors have been chosen

The parades have passed

The laughter



Lows and pains

Somewhere a piano plays

Music is remembered

As the all sensory harmony

That lends credibility and pleasure

To daily lives

After the shows

And the parades

Revelries and

smash hit

epics and crusades

comes the day by days

The one hit wonders replaced

By the extraordinary and stable

by lullabies

and bedtime stories

After all the parades

the restructurings

the bull, the entertainments

and triumphs

comes a life

That is worthwhile.
