Mardi Gras

Wed, 02/21/2018 - 07:18 -- puffin

Passion, music, worldly delight;
Ecstatic, they celebrate all night.
For at dawn, there are sacrifices;
Pleasures to be spurned as vices.


Humanity has this wonderful disposition.
Vehemently we savor moments before prohibition.
Life too shall fleet like joy at the hands of the clergy;
May we celebrate and forfeit nothing before that lethargy.
