Sisterly Love

My sweet baby sister (AKA the traitor) Has radars for ears and the mind of a spy, She eavesdrops, twists facts, and then tattletales, And proudly serves mom an elaborate lie. I sweet talked, I begged, I bribed then I threatened, Locked her in the bathroom and turned off the light, I secretly hoped that she would get better: It got better indeed, not sis, but her spite! She listened in to the private confession About the boy crush that I shared with a friend, She posted it promptly on-line, no discretion No mercy, no sisterhood! Viral it went! That sure was the last camel back-breaking straw! Eavesdropped and Exposed!!!- an egregious offence! Should be charged, prosecuted and punished by law, With no chance of parole, appeal or defense!

Very well written, love the flow and the story. The net can be a very dangerous place. Take care, Richard

Posting on social media about your sister should be a crime too; Margarita. I think we have the same sister! You are right. Eavesdropping should be a crime. Unfortunately, we are sometimes excited and our voices raise, and it is partly our own fault we are overheard. This was amazingly delightful and humorous!
