Ode to A Royal Wedding

We gathered, we dined, we may have even wined.
We snacked and we yakked
Then out came the books--photos from our weddings way back in time
Before we were friends...and when we had waistlines

We decorated hats or at least we tried
and left little doubt why a tradition has died

Some left, some stayed

Some dozed--a few snored
And then the alarms implored.

We oohed, we ahhhed
We poked a little fun
We smiled
And remembered the day of our own wedding fun

They smiled and they promised
but obey was omitted
Prayers were read and songs were sung
They processed and we waited for the anticipated kiss (would it be short or would it be long?)
A first, then a second
Then the party inside beckoned

We sighed as we gathered our thoughts and our things
Back to our castles and our own would-be kings
