The Afters

by joetwo

The ceremony has been done
The register is signed
How it’s time to go get drunk
And do what comes to mind
#
The music blares across the floor
The lights have all gone dim
The guests all start to shuffle round
Dressed up, looking grim
#
Time goes past yet no one dares
To move there with the beat
But you can tell they’re digging it
By the twitching of their feet
#
But then some nut, some lunatic
Throws himself a shape
All else there are staring
Eyes wide and mouth agape
#
Then one by one others emerge
To beat him at his game
Even those who smirked the most
Are dancing just the same
#
Young and old, small and big
Are equal to the tune
All swaying, shouting, holding hands
And bopping like a loon
#
Three hours in we reach the peak
The nadir is in sight
That single tune that gets us off
The moment of the night
#
There’s hugs and kisses all embrace
The crowd all moves as one
Though it splits up at ths chorus
Cos that’s part of the fun
#
And as the night draws to a close
The crowd all leaves the floor
Except the mad-man from the start
Who wants to go some more
#
And that is it, the wedding night
With fun and joy for all
For it is not just every day
We have this kind of ball
