Blood Lies

It was a lifeless marriage –
once she openly admitted
I only married him because
he had a promising career
but her honesty was never
shared out to her husband
just to her sister & mother
[their unhappy triumvirate
of frothing coffee stirrers]
& decrees will be served &
stuff divided – broken kids
sidelined-ed – roll on Xmas
& less son-in-laws to feed –
Mummy has her girls again
& she’ll be loved [no doubts]
