Who Is Going to Tell Her

Who is going to tell her we asked each other,
Your sister, your aunt, married to your brother.
Tell her in a nice way we cautioned the loser,
Sandra glared at us, the worst straw chooser.

She sat and stared but did not talk at all.
Supposed to tell her today, not next fall.
We knew this could quickly go south,
for a fly does not enter a closed mouth…

Being at the loosing end of the short straw contention I can certainly feel empathy. For the very reason the straw was needed in the first place north was never the destination. Loved the poem!! Congratulations :)

"going south" seems to have found favour with both of us, Caren. "Sodom and Gomorrah were going south, ... for a fly does not enter a closed mouth" - from my poem "Lot's Wife". Congratulations on your first place win with this delightful poem. Regards, Su

I have raised three daughters and I have six granddaughters, and I used to allow 14 girls aged 11 to 13 to have lunch with me about three days a week for two years. I am surrounded by this!
