NAPOWRIMO 2013 #10


Prompted by Miz Quickly

'Peasant Wedding'
Bruegel, Pieter the Elder

I hope you don't mind me coming so late,
but I wanted to wait until now
before showing you how it is done...

At this time when the sun doesn't shine
stands a line of a dozen witnesses.
Their business is to doubt or condemn,
but without them to view the event,
the time I've spent would have been wasted
and they could never have tasted my wares.

Although it scares those who volunteer,
I'll make it clear I appreciate
all supporters to date, for my victory.

Particularly those amongst you
who once figured the subject taboo.
And for those who are still sceptical,
the spectacle may astonish.
Don't admonish, it isn't a sin;
I'll begin without further ado...
