Guests descend

Guests descend, always. And always we’re the hospitable host. But not today. We’ve been here six weeks. We’re setting off at sunrise tomorrow morning. Today we’re busy packing up home. Today is not convenient for us.

But even so, relatives who say they couldn’t visit us before now, insist on dropping in to see us. They will only stay an hour or two, they proclaim, persistent in their plan.

And so guests will descend, although we will have nothing to offer them as we will have given away all our food, and they will have nothing to sit on because we will have covered up all our furniture.

But still we will be hospitable hosts, however grudgingly we receive them. They say it was not convenient for them at any point over the past six weeks. We say it is not convenient for us today. But always the guest will win.
