afternoon ceremony

music plays
a Turkish ballad
on this not quite
spring day
they test the microphone
set up tables
for food
and drink
a podium for speeches
awards to be given
employees recognized
banners flap
in the breeze
a festive mood
prevails
a joyous way
to end the day
as we approach
one more holiday
my only regret
I forgot to wear
a tie
