AND THEN THERE WERE NONE

It was the lovely 31st March evening,
A party for me, my friends said with glee.
It was on very rare occasions that I got,
To merry make such and be so happy.

It was getting dark, like cinderella..
I hoped, worried that I was not late.
Perhaps the party had already begun,
Gathering my gown, hurried, to reach the venue gate.

Yes! Its tonight, come right before 12..
My friends had called again to confirm.
I was dressed my best, make-up and frills,
My hair like a princess, a trendy glamorous perm.

I was all set to steal the show,
My competitors I shall defeat I swore.
Those high society showoffs, those darlings of the crowd,
Were but for me, an utter eye sore.

I was excited at the thought of food and wine,
The music and dance that I always pined for me awaits.
New people that I'd meet, the best social do it was,
The sort of party, I wanted to be part of always.

I heard the music from quite afar, the media and the glitz..
I rushed to the building, not wanting to miss the fun.
I looked up the balcony, my friends saw me as they waved,
Up the stairs, to join them fast I began to run.

I reached the top floor where the party was,
A quick glance at my mirror, assured I was second to none.
Expecting a grand welcome, with rockstar pomp I walked in,
The music had stopped, all quiet and then there were none...

The midnight clock striked sharp at 12
Realised, alas it was the April 1st fool that I was made.

  7. Hi Nandini,

    Ahh, I see. A lovely take on the prompt. I thought you were talking about March ending for the countless of people working in offices where the annual targets, sales figures need to be met. A harrowing time for many.
    But you took it right around and spun a wonderful tale.
    That was a good read. So, how was the music playing then? Somebody controlling the system through wireless? :)

    Regards
