A Nuncle at Home


Harmony had governed the home
Kisses and hugs bloomed in their life
Trust abounded with his wife
Before an nuncle came home

Tsunami broke into the home
The day became the evening
Things changed causing screaming
For an nuncle visited home

He was namesake to her uncle
As he came from wandering
Met juice home, unknown juice 
Infected juice he brought

He brought juice to his honey
That damaged the man’s love
Love fled away, honey became bitter
Appalling regret the nuncle caused

Openness and truthfulness 
Build trust between lovers
Liars do so for a selfish reason
An nuncle is never an uncle
