The Estranged Guest
"And when the king came in to see the guests...
........ Friend,how camest thou in hither not having
A wedding garment?........" Matthew 22:11-12
We matched into the beautifully
Decorated hall with the bridal train,
Guests were already seated;
And they gave us a standing ovation.
It was a funfair;
Eating, drinking, dancing
And merry making.
We took beautiful snapshots
With family, friends and well- wishers.
However, just before the closing remark
By the bridegroom,
There was a loud noise
At the gate.
A lady had forcefully entered
And was almost whisked away
By the security personnel.
But, she insisted she's a close friend
To the bride.
Her name was whispered in my ears
On the high table,
I gave my consent
And she joined us.
Jenny, my incredible bunk mate.
Looking sickly and fragile.
I wonder what she is up to this time.
