The World at Our Feet ( A Poem for Mardi Gras)

I posted this poem – on another blog a while back.  It seems I’ve never posted it on my blog.  Since it’s Mardi Gras in my New Orleans, I’ll post it again here.  It’s odd, living now in Silicon Valley, that people actually WORK on Mardi Gras.  I hope you enjoy this poem…

The World At Our Feet

Let’s have a party on our balcony.
Let’s invite the world.
Let’s show people
how to make fun
of politics, politicians,
and all those things
mother told us not to ever do.
Let’s laugh again
when we thought
we’d never stop crying.
Let’s do it wearing a tutu
or less.
