a table set for thousands #2

I have to let the words make mistakes,
dozens of them, years of them
tonnes of them
before
I take them out to dinner,
introduce them to dangerous types
happy holidays, marriage ceremonies
gainful employment, theft of history
blood feuds
strange cousins
and salesmen, with coins that sparkle
like wishes in fountains
