tired, on return, a full
day with people, but
the spirit of co-operation
showed in the
smooth service and the
physical marquees, the
food provided, the drinks,
the teas

all is not bad
when people come together
in a common purpose -
it can be done without
knives or blood being shed
even although the
robes were crimson: blood
red with
gold in the soul
