Poem: Mind Your Business

angry mother puppetWhen the angry mother of two successors to her gene pool

behaved with an absence of cool

failed to set a good example for her precious offspring

neglected to teach them the importance of thinking

about others

as though they were sisters or brothers

not competitors at a shrinking trough

she was at that moment a suckling sow

and knowing that this was known and henceforth always would be

by those who had seen her dereliction of parental duty

she lashed out at the one most aware

of her pugnacious absence of care

yelling almost screaming but not from sheer bliss

instructing onlookers to mind their own business.
