Remains of the Day*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr


 

 

CDLXIII ~> Remains of the Day*

CDLXIII ~> Remains of the Day*
(Opus463 ~> Remains of the Day)
(1)
The Remains of the Day is a movie
Title that sounds too catchy to ignore;
You did not, end-to-end the movie see
Yet it calls on you in-depth to explore
The meaning of the words you heard before:
The Remains of the Day might well evince
Much wealth of mighty damning evidence!
(2)
When it turns out you have nothing to hide,
Move on and promptly thank your lucky star.
With no more than bold yesterdays for guide,
Lucky you are, to have arrived this far;
Without the hint of one unseemly scar:
Remains of the day serves good reminder
Of chances squandered when you meander!
(3)
Too soon today’s consigned to history
Before you get prepared for the next game;
Wild trespasses that haunt your reverie
In oblivion you drown with none to blame
Regardless how much sins may taint your name:
Chances are good that Remains of the Day
Give you hints how tomorrows find the way!
