My Mother In Law Was A Taurus
My mother-in-law was a Taurus.
Thought she was the easiest person in the world to get along with.
People loved her. She was revered and adored.
Also feared and tiptoed around, for she needed her own way
Most of the time. She also stood up for the underdogs,
And wanted others to have their own way too.
She was nurturing and loving when she liked you.
She had an eyebrow raise that could strike people dead
When she was displeased. I only saw it every day or so.
Usually directed to my father-in-law who was terrified each time.
None of us dared laugh.
A Taurus is an eclectic combination of
Have-To-Have-My-Way, and Want-You-To-Have-Yours-too.
We never double crossed our Taurus.
She loved me to pieces, and I her, but I knew who was the boss.
