  365.     

Never Entrust A Confidence To Such A Callous Person

Why do people take delight in nurturing
all things negative, in propagating every
damning word that was said to them
in confidence?

It makes me wary of friends and family
even more wary of myself – am I like
this, if pressed in a family gathering,
will I also tell all how bad

Sister felt about mother’s rejection, how paranoid
mother supposedly was - I suppose I might, and
once again decide never to visit the family
to partake in general gossip

Your shock on hearing your sister and mother
attacked by a sister-in-law who wasn’t stopped
by your childhood hero – your elder brother -
showed how deep such attacks hurt

She blissfully dissected the sweetest memories
you treasure of your deceased family, but she
did NOT say a word about them, she only
revealed the contents of her mind

I shall never entrust a confidence to such
a callous person – you did not expect the
attack – next time you will be
forewarned…

The Old Dead Patriarchs

They started a feud between two families that has been going on for years
That has led to assaults and court cases and to bitterness and tears
A feud that is still going on today about a boundary fence
Some people take their grudges too far for want of better sense.

In the cemetery at the west side of the Town at rest they forever lay
But the bitterness they started years ago in their kin lives on today
One family cannot make peace with the other without a seeming loss of face
It has not occurred to either side to forget, forgive and embrace.

The old dead patriarchs still the patriarchs of their family
They seem to rule from their old graves in the Town cemetery
Their grudges did not die with them their grandchildren today
Say if we make peace with those next door what would old grand dad say.

The old dead patriarchs are at rest to the Reaper long gone
But their old feuds which seems sad to say by their families carried on
A feud that started about a metre of ground around a boundary fence
Some people take their grudges too far for want of better sense.
