The Grand Party

‘You are cordially invited,’

The enchantingly embossed

Card explained,

‘To a Grand party for Halloween.

Costumes will, of course, be mandatory,

With a Revolutionary France theme.’

I naturally dressed

As a member of the Vendée.

I followed the lovely warble

Of the nightingale,

As no one can resist its sweet

Enchanting trill.

Having walked through

An opaque fog,

I arrived at last

At the intended address.

Alas, to my unspeakable horror,

It was no mere party.

I was truly in

Revolutionary France.
