Collapsed faces

Drowning within themselves

Piercing through thin ice


A composer of beasts


Appearances to maintain

Your clapping insults

My sensibilities

But I politely smile

Cringing at your boldness 


Boorishness I despise

You, ripping through this amazing feast

Tearing, spilling

But I fantasize you proper

A civil man to maintain my composure


Distorted hands

Sharply plowing at the table

Making its way towards


An inventor of brutes

Pretenses to uphold

You leave the dinner table

I stand


I remain


Maintaining my mask

Speeches are given to this commemorated day

Impolitely you decline

My words carefully chosen

An ode to normalcy
