it's all about the fun!

It's all about the after party
Drinking to the reviews
The critics speak, and we choose
Popping champagne in celebration
Teary beer mugs of commiseration

After all the unceasing pressure
grief and pleasure in overload measure
holding in that sea of emotion
to assure that the all holy show goes on
after it's all been and gone
after the crowd's gone home, no longer
our lords and masters
after all the disasters we feared
and worked to avert
have appeared or agreed to desert,
it must be clear we deserve this sweet release!

Up in the clouds where, finally we're allowed,
lose or win,
to please ourselves, abandon reason for
this brief season of illusive dreaming,
to refind that childlike mirthful grin
where it all begins
