Mardi Gras 2015!

The Official Mardi Gras Poem
[Bridgette Williams]

Welcome, Fat Tuesday.
Throw your cares away!
Hand me that King's cake.
It's time to celebrate!
You get the baby.
I get the wine.
The gumbo, the shrimp.
We are going to have a good time!
All the colored beads.
Too many lights
to see.
The bands are playing.
The music is so sweet!
And, we are dancing.
This night is meant to stay.
We will always remember.
Happy Mardi Gras Day!
Never stop partying.
Best Mardi Gras…

Alas, this year I stayed back in NC because of the threatening icy weather. Being stranded on some interstate is no way to go through life.
