The Carry On Continues

You must remember weddings where bride and groom
Photographers and guests

    and kids and booze
    (and some old geezer having a quick snooze);

Wedding cakes, all that paraphernalia
Jostled for space

    with a few muttered words
    and a kiss

And the long years after to rue the fact.

Thank God the whole performance has been streamlined now

    four minutes, four words on the dotted line
    "I am yours and you are mine"
    no regrets - yet - and the scene all set

For a quick divorce.
